Lessons from Nature Perennial Sale & Amanda’s Garden
May 19, 9:00 – 2:00, 170 Pine St., E. Aurora

Our plant sale is a great opportunity to get healthy, large perennial divisions for sun and shade as well as a wide variety of native plants at modest prices. Amanda’s Garden (www.amandasnativeplants.com) will also be here selling natives which she propagates. You can check out her website for a list of what she carries. She will accept pre-orders. Between us we will have the largest selection of native plants in WNY!

The complete list of my available plants will be sent the week before the sale. With the late spring weather I just started some digging yesterday. Most things aren’t even up yet!
