We have 3 new grasses and 2 new perennials for 2015.
you haven't yet discovered Pinterest....
So what is Pinterest?
It is actually quite simple. First you create an account on
Pinterest. Its free.
Then when you see a picture you like on the internet you can
Pin it, which means that you save it to a folder (Pinterest
calls it a Board) in your account. You are creating a photo
album. Pinterest is all about pictures. Yum!
Why do I want you to know about it?
I have put most of our images onto a Bluestem Nursery account
on Pinterest. I still
have more to add, but at least the majority of the grass images
are there. I have also put a Pin It button on most pages of
So when you are wandering around our website, and you see a
grass you are interested in, simply click the Pin It button
(you may have to do this to the pic a second time) to save it
to your Pinterest account.
OR, simply click on the photo on the right and it will take
you right to our photo albums, which includes one for grasses,
willows, perennials, willow sculpture, etc. You can click on
any board and when you see something you are interested in,
just hover your mouse over the picture and a Pin It button appears.
Click on it and follow the simple steps to place it into your
own Pinterest account.
When you are planning an order I am sure that you haven't much
liked making notes, so this should make it easy for you to assemble
the plants that you like into one easy-to-view place. A Wish
List of pictures of the plants! I had always wanted a way for
you to assemble one, but it was beyond my technical skills to
add one to the website.
We do not yet have any of our own pictures of our two new
Molinias, but I was able to find some luscious pics of them
and Pin them to our Ornamental Grasses Board. I can not ethically
put them onto our website, but Pinterest is all about sharing.
TIP: when you sign up you will be asked for
your interests. I suggest that you keep that field very limited,
for example, just Gardening. I am not sure what I indicated
I was interested in, but somehow I ended up with a gazillion
pics of wedding dresses, which I am not the least bit interested
in! This part of Pinterest can be a little confusing. To get
rid of those one must click on Followers and then click on Unfollow
to prevent any that you do not want from showing up on your
homepage. This will result in your homepage making more sense
And yes, you can Follow us, so that whenever I Pin new pics
to the Bluestem Nursery Pinterest page, they will turn up on
your Pinterest homepage. To Follow us, go to the the Bluestem
Nursery page of Boards (do a search for us if the link doesn't
work). There you will see a red Follow button. You can follow
all our Boards or just individual ones.
There is more to Pinterest that I have describe above, but
you will figure them out after you start using it. If you do
have questions, I am planning another newsletter soon, so I
can post answers in it. (We are planning to carry more native
plants. The next newsletter will give you more details).
I sure hope that I explained it clearly!!!! Its very easy once
you get going.
One last thing. I would like to apologize to Google Chrome users.
I did not realize that Chrome had overtaken Internet Explorer
as the most popular browser until I was having trouble with
my machine working agonizingly slowly. I decided to give Chrome
a try and what a difference!!!! Then I looked at our site and
was shocked at all the things that weren't lined up properly,
or were overlapping, etc. I am quite sure everything is fixed
