Each spring I purchase 200 seedlings of Rhododendron periclymenoides pinxterbloom azalea germinated from seed collected on the Appalachian Trail. People email me and call on my phone asking about availability; either of larger or smaller plants. Customers can email me or call me on my cell phone at 518-526-9101 asking if its to late to order pinxterbloom azaleas mailorder. The seedlings arrive (I take pictures and insert them in the newsletter) and I make them available for $5 each. The agricultural inspector comes to examine them, and I call you back to ask for a certified check. The email you send me asking to subscribe and telling me you want to purchase pinxterbloom azaleas is your order form so include how many plants you want, your mailing address, phone numbers etc. I will print it out and prioritize it by when I received the order in case we run out of Azaleas. Most people interested in mail-order might buy 5 three inch potted plants for $5 each ($25) plus 8% tax plus the cost of Flat Rate Priority US Mail ($12.35 as of May 2013). As I fill the orders in May I will call you back to see if you still want the plants, to discuss any problems with your order and tell you how much you should make your check out for (the sooner it clears, the sooner I send the plants so you should send a certified check at that time (dont send any money until after I call you back). As the plugs start to get root bound I repot into 2 inch or 3 inch pots that still easily fit the priority mail packages (I will sell the largest first next year, followed by plugs when I run out of the larger plants). Piedmont Azalea or Rhododendron canescens, native south of the Carolinas is also called the pinxter Azalea so make sure you know which pinxter you want by providing the botanical name, because we dont have any Piedmont Azalea at this time.
