You can find us at the Duke Gardens Plant and Craft Sale, today (4/23) from 4-6 pm (must be a member) and tomorrow/Saturday from 9 am-2 pm. Lots of great growers there, such as the Duke Gardens volunteers and Niche Gardens. Chris and I will be selling plants we propagated out of our cottage garden; drought-hardy garden survivors like Blue Star, Lenten Rose, Sedum ‘Blue Spruce”, Mountain Mint, Rose Campion, Woodland Aster and an unusual plant called Farfugium japonicum “Crispatum”. (Sorry, don't have any of the heirloom purple raspberries this year--will have them next spring. Read my story in the Independent Weekly to learn more)
We've priced the plants lower than last year for two reasons: the cold weather kept them from growing as much over the winter so some are smaller than they were last year and also because Chris and I won’t be here to water them in May, so we want to sell out! Come help us empty the nursery ! Look for our green market umbrella.
At last year's sale, Duke Gardens staffer, Orla Swift, shot a video of me (on caffeine) talking about keeping birds out of your fruiting plants. Hope to see you there.
