Lessons from Nature and Amanda’s Garden Native and Perennial Plant Sale

Saturday, May 18, 9:00 – 2:00
170 Pine St., E Aurora, corner of Pine & Lawrence

Clients and those of you who get my tips can come at 8:00 and beat the rush. We will have a larger variety of native plants on that one day than anywhere in WNY. All my plants are dug fresh from my garden and those from Amanda’s Garden are started from seed by Ellen. Fultz, the owner. I will also have a selection of non-native perennials, hypertufa containers, draped concrete planters and birdbaths. A listing of what plants will be available will be in the May Garden Tips and on my web site.
