In honor of Earth Day, the true Mother’s Day (Mother Nature, silly!), I recommend taking in as many plant sales as possible. Here’s the short list:

Friday and Saturday, April 24th & 25th, Annual Plant Sale at the Idaho Botanical Garden. Friday night is member’s only, you get first dibbs on all the good stuff. Gates open at 4 pm. and you will want to be there early. Wine, cheese, and crackers are served free of charge. The Friday MEMBERS ONLY sale has become a harbinger of Spring for Boise gardeners. Get caught up with your fellow Felco-wielding pals, load up your cart, and get ready to garden.

Psst: A little bird told me there is a shipment of really nice stuff coming in from Mountain States Wholesale + look for heirloom tomatoes from the Boise State University horticulture program.

Idaho Native Plant Society sale, held at the MK Nature Center, 10-2 on Saturday, April 25th. 600 South Walnut Street, adjacent to Municipal Park, just off Warm Springs Avenue.

Idaho Earth Institute plant sale at Lucy’s Coffee and Espresso, 1079 Broadway Avenue, click here for a map.
The sale is from 10-2.

I’ll be working Friday night at the Member’s Only sale at the Garden. Stop by and say hi.
