2010 Pre-Sale Comes to a Close ~
Great Response Received!
This year's Pre-Sale is the most successful ever! If you placed your order, you should have received an e-mail confirmation by now. If you have not, contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll check into it.
Thanks to all of you that ordered this year. The Plant Sale is our Spring fundraiser, and your participation is greatly appreciated!!
If you didn't get a chance to order ahead in the Pre-Sale, you'll have another chance to buy native at the Regular Sale. This year's Wildflower and Native Plant Sale is being held on Saturday, April 24th.
You may also be interested in meeting Carolyn Summers on Sale Day. As Chair of the Plant Sale, she has done a fabulous job researching and ordering native plants for us. Carolyn's new book, Designing Gardens with Flora of the American East, is being released this Spring. Order your copy today. She'll also be speaking at a lecture on April 16th Designing Your Garden with Northeastern Flora: A Personal View. Be sure to attend this lecture. It may be especially helpful to you if you want a better perspective on what plants to buy at the Plant Sale. To learn more about Carolyn's expertise in the field, read her bio below.
