As a garden writer, Proven Winners sends out some of their plants for me to trial in my garden and then review them later in the season. Now as a former nurseryman and plant freak, I’m a huge fan of what they’re doing and if you run a search on the site for Proven Winners, you’re going to see some superb plants pop up.
This year when the boxes arrived, I thought I’d take a few pics of the unpacking process.
The Boxes Arrive And I’m Not At All Excited… 🙂
And yes, they are fragile.

Out they come (and I’m taking peeks at the tags)
Here’s the second tray (and I’m still taking peeks at the tags) Proven Winners has sent two of almost every plant.
So What’s In There?

Man, this is going to be tough to find a spot for all these plants in my garden but I’m determined to try 🙂
And just in case you need to dream along, here’s a book you can get yourself from Proven Winners They publish about 350,000 copies every year so do get yours at the website (and try not to drool too much on your keyboard when you see all the pictures.)
I’ll have progress reports on these plants and more pictures/reports when they mature. But for now, I’m simply having fun with the unboxing.
