In between the raindrops today, we are packing up Ozark Native Plants for the plant sale this weekend. We will have a big booth set up at the Botanical Garden of the Ozarks this Friday and Saturday. Friday night (5 to 8 PM) the sale is just for members of the Botanical Garden. On Saturday everyone is welcome between 8 AM and noon. Please take note of that 12 noon closing time! The Botanical Garden is located at 4703 N. Crossover near the north edge of Fayetteville.This is the perfect time of the year for planting native plants. The weather is still on the cool side and most of the plants have emerged from winter dormancy and are full of life.
We traveled down to Little Rock with the plants last weekend for a sale put on by the Audubon society and sold pretty much all of the plants we took there. (We had just two plants left to take home!) Paula and I have been busy all week potting up plants to replace the ones we sold in Little Rock. These plants are ready to move from our garden soil into yours! Wild ginger, Christmas ferns, woodland phlox (in bloom right now), wood poppies, goldenseal, bloodroot, wild clematis, black cohosh, southern fragile fern, jewelweed, trout lilies, cut-leaved toothwort, trillium and many, many more.
We hope to see you this Friday or Saturday at the Botanical Gardens!
And keep in mind the rest of our spring schedule. We’ll be selling plants out in our neck of the woods at the Saint Paul Library (Highway 16 east) on May 5th. Then we are back for our last spring sale in Fayettevile on May 19th at Tricycle Farms. For any of you interested in getting the best possible prices on our native plants, we will be having our Overstock Sale on June 2nd. This end of spring sale will be out here in Saint Paul on the covered library porch.
