Salem Hardy Plant Society Plant Sale

We are busy this week getting ready for the Salem Hardy Plant Society Plant Sale being held next Saturday, September 11th from 9 to 3 at the Polk County Fairgrounds in Rickreall.  Visit the SHPS website for details.  To help get the word out, Truls will be interviewed by Mike Darcy on Saturday morning just after 9 am during his radio program In the Garden with Mike Darcy.

We will bring a large selection of plants to the sale including tiny cushion Saxifrages, perfect for the trough garden, and drought tolerant native Penstemons and Lewisias.  Be sure to stop by to check out our Hardy Gingers such as Hedychium greenii and Primulas, including the Poker Primrose, Primula viallii.

For those of you who can't make it to the sale, the nursery will be open 10 to 4 on both Saturday and Sunday.
