This coming weekend marks the beginning of plant sale season here in Minnesota. Plant sales sponsored by garden clubs, Master Gardener groups or local charities are great places to find inexpensive, unusual and well-cared for plants. We have a complete list of plant sales that will be held over the few weeks on the Northern Gardener website. You are sure to find one near your house.
We also have a list in Northern Gardener magazine, but due to a production error we missed four sales, which will be held this weekend. You can find great plants at the sales listed below, which will be held in Bloomington, Edina, Mahtomedi and Century College in St. Paul. Check them out!
