    Sadly, no. The move only became a firm thing in late January, so I've not really had much time to propagate. I will be very lucky if everything I still have in nursery stock, not yet planted, makes it up there and intact so I can get them all planted in the first couple of days. These items include:

    Several Japanese maples (5?)
    About a dozen 1 gallon hostas, including
      1 Spilt Milk
      6 Earth Angel
      1 Empress Wu
    Agastache, about 6
    Columbine, about 6, including 2 yellow-leaved
    Cranesbill geranium

    Plus all the herbs I just purchased, and the dozen pansies.

    That being said, some items heeled in last year from White nursery, MO Dept of Conservation, will likely be lifted and taken with. I'm thinking specifically pawpaw and blackberry, for sure. None of my mint is going with, but I'm taking a tiny pot of chocolate mint, hoping to get that going well.

    That's actually all I think I can take with me. Everything else I'm going to have to get via mail order or special trip. For buffalograss seed, I'm planning on Stock Seed Farm. I'll have to hunt around for ginkgo and cedrus libani stenocoma. English walnuts from Stark, I think. I think I'll plant one native bur oak, or else a heritage oak (Quercus macrocarpa x robur). I'm waiting to discuss most trees with Glenn, before getting things too planned out in the yard.

      I regret not remembering to take "before" photos on various gardening projects. Intermediate pics are great too but it's always nice to have a record of what the landscape looked like before you transformed it.

        That's a great reminder, we have a few photos but nothing like the extensive views I want - both outside looking at the house, and from inside looking outward.

        (I think the transformation will be nothing less than remarkable within 5 years, possibly fewer.)

        Besides, I need some of those photos for planning purposes.

        I will keep y'all posted of the progress!
