Oh No! As I am sitting here prepping my August Blogs I like post, I clicked over to email to see that Loomis Creek is closing. I have to admit to being quite sad. While I have ever only visited the store once, it is one of those websites I peruse regularly. In my same zone (5), Andrew and Bob cultivate a list of plant varieties that are quite different than those readily available at my more local suppliers.
I am forever trying to find the quirky and unusual often with some frustration. Either I can’t find or I do and it doesn’t perform. Thats usually when I check at Loomis Creek. They have the plant — which feeds my determination to get the item because now I know if will work, — or they don’t, when I usually decide I should let that one go. They are like a quick online litmus test for my plant choices.
As they move to the pacific northwest, for new adventures, I and their neighbors in the Hudson valley will surely miss them. For now though, I am scoping out my already full fall schedule to see when I can make the couple hour trek to Loomis Creek and pick up some final treasures before they are gone at the end of the season.
