The Friends 2013 Member Plant Dividends

Plant Dividends - a Benefit of Membership

This year's Plant Sale features foliage plants, so each of our dividend plants is a desireable foliage plant for your garden. Your dividend (one or two plants, depending on your level of membership) may be picked up at the Friday evening Members-only Plant Sale (May 3rd) or at the main sale, Saturday and Sunday May 4 & 5), or at the Haggerty Education Center from Monday May 6th through Friday May 11th, from 9am - 4:30pm.
