The inbox is full of dates we dare not miss. BUT this is the real thing: RAINCATCHER’s PLANT sale is coming. It’s May 19th from 10am-3pm and you really don’t want to miss it
Raincatcher’s gardens are special and the sale is too. It is a chance to buy plants grown right here not brought from greenhouses or plant farms miles away. These are the plants that did well. That could be divided and passed along. Conditions here are tough—only the strong survive and thrive—and those are the plants you will find at the sale. There will be plants from the gardens around you as you shop and plants grown by the friendly gardeners that will help you pick the ones that will work for you. Raincatchers is not just one thing—its large and diverse with sun, and shade veg and herbs plants for pollinators and plants just because they are lovely.
Every garden should have a bit of fun and you will find that too—maybe just the pot you never knew you had to have or a piece of garden art for the finishing touch. One of a kind things—to inspire the thrill of the hunt.
Of course it’s a fund raiser for the gardens—but its more RAincatchers goal is to spread the love of gardening and the sale is an important part of that. The gardeners that will assist you really want you to find things that will work for you will make you happy and brighten your part of the world.
So —save the date May 19th. We will see you soon.
