Beaver Creek?

Is Beaver Creek gone? There's no website any more ....

I wouldn't know.  Last I looked - maybe a week ago? - it was still there.  Let's hope it's just some site work associated with getting a new catalogue out.

That's what I'm hoping. It hasn't been there for a few days. The error message is that the DNS lookup couldn't find the website.

I can't grow all the plants I want from seed; it's exhausting.

Still wondering what's up.  Does anyone know?

I got an email saying the website was back up, but that's Beaver Creek Nursery, not Beaver Creek Greenhouses. (rockgardenplants.com)

I can't grow everything I want from seed, that would be too exhausting. 

Not to add more to the gloom, but Coenosium and Porterhowse are no longer doing mail order, according to their websites.

I just tried to access the Beaver Creek website, and it's not 'up.' Any news on whether or not they are still in business?

I heard from David Sellars, who spoke at our chapter last week, that the owner's wife is ill with cancer so he's not doing mail order right now.  I don't think David knew exactly how much business he was doing or if he would likely resume it full tilt in the future.

Worst reason for a business to be put 'on hold.' I hope she recovers soon. The Barlows are very nice people, and excellent growers. Let's all wish them the quickest and most successful recovery!

So very sorry to hear this.  Wishing them all the best!
