Save the Monarchs: Two other milkweed sources

I was pleased to see that The Rock River Times is encouraging people to plant milkweed to help Monarch butterflies (April 23-29 issue). However, I was disappointed that two of the nurseries I recommended, both of which are close by in northern Illinois and both of which support renewable energy and the Illinois Renwable Energy and Sustainable Lifestyle Fair, were not listed. They are:

  • Blazing Star Nursery, 2107 Edgewood Drive, Woodstock, IL 60098, (815) 338-4716,; and
  • Red Buffalo Nursery, 10502 Seaman Road, Hebron, IL 60034, (815) 648-4838,

I would appreciate your printing their contact information. Thanks.
