The moment we've all been waiting for is
finally here -- fresh
neem seeds will be delivered from Mexico for shipment starting
getting the seeds from the same grower who sent seeds last summer.
Germination here was our best ever, but some customers still had problems.
Rather than taking the time to test them this year, we're putting them in the
mail as fast as we can. Hopefully that will make it possible for everyone to
enjoy the sight of a baby neem tree peeking out of the soil.
still have lots of seedlings from last summer's seeds, so we'll do a special
on seedlings and seeds - buy one seedling and get the seeds for
half price. We've been running short on our other plants -- including tulsi, gotu
kola and chaya because
demand exceeded even our wildest dreams -- but we've posted what we have on hidden specials on the
website, along with a limited number of full-sized neem trees, so
people who have been waiting patiently get first dubs on them.
plan is to ship as many seeds as we can through July 15, then plant the rest
here so we should have some sprouts in four to six weeks. Like many tropical
plants that grow in locations where cold is not an issue, but voracious
insects are, neem seeds are in a race against time the minute they ripen. If
they're not planted within 30 days of harvest, they probably won't sprout.
that we haven't had a sale since before the holidays, we also have some great
deals for the non-gardeners among our customers:
- Buy one,
get one free on our best-selling Botanical
Outdoor Gel or our super-concentrated Anti-Itch
Formula. Both are perfect picks for a back-pack to stop the
scratching caused by bug bites, allergic reactions or sunburn.
- Once you get
back home, luxuriate with a BOGO on our new body
shampoo, made with 70% neem and aloe vera to soothe dry,
damaged skin. Unlike some body shampoos made with petroleum-based oils,
this botanical product leaves a light layer of aloe vera on your skin
for a special smoothness that isn't sticky or greasy. (To use coupons,
order two bottles and then insert the coupon to get one for free.)
- We had such
great response to our special offer on Neem
for Nails last summer that we'll do it again. If your
feet don't look their best in summer sandals, give neem a chance, then
let us know what you think. If you're not happy with the improvement in
90 days, we'll give you a coupon worth $12.99 on your next order.
sure to ask for samples to be included in your order, we're stocked with lots
of great products in small sizes, including the Anti-Itch Formula, Facial Serum, Bio-Enviro cleaner,Neem & Aloe Soap,Neem Soap with Citronella,Neem Hair Care and Peppermint Massage Oil.
you're having a wonderful summer!
