    'Eye Catcher'                                             'Spot On'
    photos from Botanus.com

    Alan McMurtrie, a Canadian hybridizer and friend of ORG&HPS, sent us this note: "My hybrids 'Eye Catcher' and 'Spot On' are available for the first time from Botanus.com in Langley B.C. They were hybridized in my Toronto garden, and are being propagated in Holland. It's been a difficult uphill battle getting my hybrids into Holland. It's also been a difficult battle getting them into Canada. Botanus.com has them reasonably priced and your support would be appreciated so Botanus.com sells them again next year, and perhaps carries a couple more varieties."  Read more about Alan's work..

    After nearly two decades of supplying hard-to-find and unusual plants to plantaholics in-the-know, Larry and Evita are retiring. This very special nursery is looking for new owners.  Meanwhile, visit the nursery now to see the late-season bloomers that will add colour to your garden well into autumn. Late summer and early fall is a great time to plant perennials; the soil is warm, giving them plenty of time to put down roots before the ground freezes. They'll get a terrific head start on next year's growing season. Open until the end of October, 2015.  Hours: Wed-Sun: 10AM to 5PM, Mon-Tues: Closed www.losthorizons.ca
