Mark your calenders! Spring Garden Fair 2019!

Check out their website for more info!

We are in the same spot as last year, C5! Can't miss us ! :) I've got just a few straggler envelopes left to address this weekend, but after the Garden Fair you are best to wait until Fall to get the seeds going. We are still happy to send out seeds, but that is our planting advice for now.

In the meantime, Spring has been a little late this year.. seems like it was a bit dreary last year but not as late as this. Many frustrated visitors at the tulip farms in Woodburn, but I think it'll warm up soon. I've been fretting about the milkweed plants. The spring garden fair is exactly 1 month away but they are barely  breaking through the soil if at all! Will bring out the greenhouse tents this weekend to give them a little nudge.

This year we will offer the same plants as last, in our deep mini tree pots.If all goes according to plan, we will be offering pony packs of native wildflowers that the pollinators are guaranteed to love! Things have been a little slow going with relatives coming soon to visit, and me suffering a bit of a concussion this past week. Hoping to a speedy recovery soon, there's just so much to do!

Plants we are offering this year: Native to the PNW are Asclepias fascicularis and Asclepias speciosa (Showy and narrowleaf milkweed), and varieties for the small home garden, non-spreading ornamentals such as Asclepias tuberosa and Asclepias incarnata. 

We have seeds for Asclepias speciosa, A. incarnata, and A. tuberosa for sale this year, as well as our lovely PNW wildflower seed mix that has many nectar providing plants the Monarch butterfly adults absolutely love.

Come say hello! We will have free stickers for kids and adults, and we will also have coloring sheets for the kids, wildflower seed bombs, cute and fun buttons and bookmarks for sale, and as always we are happy to chat about any and everything Monarch!

See you soon and tell your friends. :)
