For a while I was worried that we didn't have a strong selection of plants. And some of them had come up slowly due to the long winter and didn't look their best, such as the Blue Star. And nothing we had for sale was in bloom. We had a lot of strikes against us.
But by noon we had sold everything, except one flat of about a dozen plants--mostly Blue Spruce sedums--and they were the best, fattest, fullest plants we came with! Don't know why people passed them over. But by the end of the sale, at 2 pm we had sold half of those and the rest will go into Chris' window boxes with some single-flower portulaca. (Both plants are very drought hardy and highly compatible in containers. )
We figure we sold enough plants to pay for a weeks worth of dinners at nice restaurants in Paris. Thanks Duke Gardens, garden volunteers and all you shoppers/gardeners ! :-)
Next year at the Plant Sale, we'll have a lot of these big, strong, fast white bearded iris in the pic below of our front yard. Also the purple, non-suckering raspberry, maybe some Solomon Seal, Violette de Bordeaux fig, other edibles and natives and maybe I'll figure out how to propagate our old-fashioned lilac. Hmmm....
