Spring Fair – Plant Donations

The Plant Sale Committee will be storing all donated plants in the Master Gardener garden at Trailside prior to the 2013 Spring Garden Fair. Any potted houseplants, annuals, biennials, perennials, herbs, vegetables, bulbs, or shrubs will be accepted**. However, we would appreciate a minimum of 6 plants per type, unless it is a rare plant. Call Susan Thomson or Joanne Krueger for guidance on the types of plants we can use for the Fair if you are unsure.

Please label (in pencil) your donated plants with Latin and common name, variety flower color, height and sun/shade requirements.
We have extra pots and labels available at the Garden if needed. Our preferred size of potted plants are 4”, 6”, or 8” pots. Larger pots are hard to sell.
**Please, NO orange daylilies or regular blue German bearded iris!
