I had the opportunity to go to the Chadwick Arboretum and Learning Garden’s Plant Sale this morning, it was fantastic. The Arboretum and Learning Gardens are located on the campus of The Ohio State University and they are intended to provide an educational environment to advance the knowledge of students in their horticulture studies and to be a resource for learning about plants for the campus community and general public. The annual plant sale generates a large part of the funding for the arboretum for the year and I was so pleased to attend the sale this year.
It is also a peaceful place for respite..and shopping it turns out. My bounty is currently sitting on my back deck absorbing what little sunshine we are getting today. I will plant some of the flowers this weekend, but I will save the vegetable seedlings for another week (bringing them outside in the day time and back in at night) so the average daily temperatures get a little higher before I put the delicate seedlings in the ground.
If you are in the local area, the plant sale is also tomorrow (Saturday May 7th, 2011). Get some gorgeous flowers and vegetables and help out a great place right here in Central Ohio!
