Anyone want a white oleander tree? It's a nice summer deck/patio/porch plant with pretty flowers. Nearing 7 foot with pot, now in a 14-inch pot but ought to be in larger. Needs to be inside over winter. While this tree is large, it's also durable and would do fine with a bike move if you've got a trailer. Also would be OK if unwieldy on public trans. I'm on the westnorth side.

Howard, if they're not dead yet (big frost this a.m.), can i come tonight? PM me best time and address! THANK YOU!

Weird late night is great, as long as not too long after 2 AM.

But it looks like they're somewhat likely be killed by frost Thursday night (although the forecast has changed from 27 to 34 low in the course of the evening.)

I am interested, h' - but couldn't come by until weird late night or early morning hours. Let me know if that would work sometime this week...thanks!

My housemate put all of his houselpants outside for the summer, and does not want to take them in.
Anyone want them? Looks like a hard frost coming Thursday night, and I don't have any room for them myself. They're near 24pl/Rockwell. They're all medium/small tropical plants.

Man, I love that place when they're having a sale!)

I picked up two gallon pots of a pinkish bee balm, two 4" plants (but very tall and well developed) of a purplish bee balm, and two gallon pots of a very yellow-flowered Helipiopsis/summer sun/False Sunflower.

An instant rebate for native plants halved the already halved price on the Heliopsis to 2.50 each.  Ttl $14 for everything.

2 heavy shopping bags, made it home on the bus with no mishaps.

I have always wanted a pond, but unfortunately at this point in my life I just don't have time to maintain it.

I hope to check out the above perennial sale this weekend-- Christy Weber Grand/Leavitt

Anybody interested in a submersible waterfall pump for a garden project? I have a never-used, 1/2 HP pump available. Not looking for much in trade. I'm more interested in someone getting some use out of it instead of it taking up space in my basement.
