Free Plants from Openlands

Posted by Ron Wolford -

Openlands has received a donation of many plants and I mean many – all of them coming on a truck to the conservatory next week on Tuesday, August 7. I will be giving them out first come first served to any gardener, however, they first have to come off the truck in flats of 6 and I will need help to do that. I will also need help in crowd control when the gates are opened at noon.

Please let me know if you can meet me at the Garfield Park Conservatory Tuesday, August 7 at 10 a.m.If I don't get any help I will have to cancel this opportunity.

The nursery will be delivering Dianthus and Coreopsis and possibly a few salvia and other perennials – up to 2000 of them.

I need to know by this afternoon if possible the latest tomorrow morning......all volunteers will take home lots of plants – and lots more gratitude from me!
