Mostly I want to know how to make them, as I'm going to order some bushes, and want to put some of the berries to use later on.:)

I'm assuming I will be able to make some with natural scent, and have them smell good, but added scent recipes will be welcome as well!:)

Also the nursery catalog I'm going to get these from has a recipe for Desert Cherry Cake I think it was they called it, to be made from Sand-cherries, so I'm hoping more than ever that mine will eventually provide crops. Other tart cherries can be substituted for the sand-cherries, but it would be nice to find out what the sand-cherries taste like!

Bayberry candles

My favorite bayberry. Yankee Candle stopped making them and have no clue on where to go. What nursery catalog are you using?

It's from the,

University Of Idaho's nursery. Kind of like buying wholesale! :)

Also, Ken replied to the other thread I posted on the gardening and had some information for me on the candle making. :)
