Saturday I will be at the Sacramento Perennial Plant Club sale trying to entice people to make the trip up the hill to see us. I will be selling some special plants that I have picked out from the nursery. Very special prices for the plant sale, too! Every year Saul Wiseman, who is the president of the club has tried to get me to attend. I usually bow out as "we are too busy" this time of year. I think he grew tired of hearing that, so it was more difficult to say no this time. I actually like doing these things as it is something different that gets me out of the nursery. It also allows me to me lots of people who would have otherwise never heard have of us, and what we have to offer.
According to the club, "Beginning at 9 AM we will have 11 different specialty nurseries here with their wonderful assortment of healthy plants to aid us with a great jump-start on this year's gardening season. They will include trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, Mediterranean and California natives; aquatic plants, miniature water gardens, and much, much more, including delightful garden related art."
"The guest speaker, Sean O'Hara, will speak at noon. He is the co-chair of the Northern California Branch of the Mediterranean Garden Society (MGS), which produces a quarterly journal for our area. 'The Garden Resource Guide for Northern California's Mediterranean Climate.' Copies will be available at his talk. MGS is headquartered in Athens, Greece. It is an international forum devoted to furthering knowledge and appreciation of plants and gardens suited to the Mediterranean climate regions of the world."
Stop by and say "hi" if your in the area. It's located at The Shepherd Art Center at McKinley Park, 3330 McKinley Blvd. Sacramento. The event ends at 3 pm.
