Passalong Plants

They’re plants that everyone grows, but hardly anyone buys…

Each has a strong value or combination of values -pretty, fragrant, extra productive, long-flowering, family heirloom, fascinating history, whatever – making it desirable by a lot of different kinds of gardeners.

Each is easy to grow without special soil preparation, extra watering or other horticultural finesse, and grows well in a wide range of conditions.

Each is relatively insect and disease free – I mean, who wants a plant that is always boogered up?

And, most importantly, each is easy to propagate by seed, division, or cutting, else it won’t be easy to share.
