This Saturday, 9/21, I'm opening my heart and soul to anyone who wants to poke and prod it.
At 1:30pm, or a fuzz later, I'll open the garden for tours, questions, and a plant sale (proceeds of which will go straight into my buy a prairie / restore a prairie / start artist residency and nursery fund).
Come see the beginning blooms of the last fall flowers, and hopefully the peak migration of monarch butterflies as they come south.
Either before or after stopping by here, you should also visit the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum native plant sale over on UNL's east campus. Great folks, great plants!
1:00 to 3:00 pm
3755 W. Plum St.
RAIN DATE -- Next day, same prairie time, same prairie channel
Some of the 50 or so plants I'll have, $3-5 each, include:
Blue Pitcher Sage
Mystery Liatris (is it white or purple, low or tall?)
Prairie Cascade Willow (rooted tree cutting)
Dig you own / beg me to chop it and dig it Mystery Hosta
Some sort of white Spiraea that needs a wetter area than I can give it (needs to be dug)
I plan to have another plant sale next May or June -- this one will have tons of flowers, grasses, and sedges from seeds gathered from my open-pollinated, organic garden.
