Plants for sale 2013

The list below shows all the plants (230  at latest count) that I've already potted up for this year's sale on April 27th. There will be more added right up to the day before the sale, so do check back. We list plants here regardless of quantity for sale - for some, there is only one, so come early for the best selection.

For a good many of the plants below, we'll have small information sheets with a photo, so you can learn the basics about the plants. However, there are way too many different plants to have such a sheet for each one, so you may wish to read up on the offerings here before coming to the sale.

Plants marked with S are available only as this year's seedlings. Some of these will bloom this year, others will not. If you are interested in a seedling variety, please ask during the sale - I will most likely not have enough space to display them all.

You can click on the botanical name of any plant to get some information - pictures, links to web resources, etc. Click on any of the first three column headings to order the list according to that column.
