Pick up for our Annual Tree Sale was held May 4. We offered a perennial for the first time; a native liatris to help our pollinating friends. It was a huge hit with our customers and we expect the monarch butterflies will think it’s a hit too when they use it to fuel up during their fall migration. Watch for more perennial selections to be added to our other great products next year. The sale will go live online February 1, 2020.
Following is a slideshow of one of our awesome customers, showing us how her plants would fit on her bicycle for their ride home together. Scroll down further for more pictures of our plant delivery from Bailey Nurseries and our fantastic volunteers. A special thanks to the Master Gardeners who always make the day extra-special.
