What’s in your Garden?!

May 7th, 2013

Save the date for two opportunities this coming weekend to consult with experts and select the plants best suited to your gardening style and available space.

Plant Sale with the Pros“, Olbrich Gardens

The staff of Olbrich Botanical Gardens hosts its “Plant Sale with the Pros“, Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11, from 11:00 AM until 5:00 PM (Friday) and from 9:00 AM until 3:00 PM (Saturday).  Look for tents, 3330 Atwood Avenue.

The sale features Wisconsin-hardy annuals, perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs and more. Master gardeners and Olbrich’s horticulturists are available to answer questions. Proceeds from the sale benefit Olbrich Gardens.

The Friends of the Arboretum hosts its annual Native Plant Sale, Saturday, May 11, from 9:00 AM until 2:00 PM. Look for tents near the Visitor Center. Should you wish to plan your list of must-have plants, do consult the 2013 Species List (soil and lighting requirements are listed).
While every effort is made to supply a quantity of each species, the Friends cannot guarantee that everything will remain available, or in the quantities desired, upon your arrival.
My rule of thumb (green thumb, that is!)–get there early! Experts will be on hand to help you locate species and to answer questions.
