I'm in the Norrthwest - but many plants grow in both NW and NE, don't they?

Hi Arthur,

I was thinking actually of things like goldenseal and chicory - I know we have Oregon Grape here which is a great stand in for goldenseal - esp as goldenseal is endangered at this point as I understand it - but I bet there are plenty of others.

I grew up on the east coast and there is a great deal about the Oregon landscape that reminds me of parts of New England - especially Massachusetts and parts of Pennsylvania...

Very interested in hearing your comments on the differences and similarities between the two locations.

Thanks for coming by permies and hanging out with us!
It's wonderful to have the chance to learn from someone who has a real wealth of knowledge, and I'm
crazy for plants.


Why is the word "abbreviation" so long? And this ad is so short?
