“What’s for Sale”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
As my sister, daughter, and I entered the sales area of Saturday’s garden show, the mantra was “what’s for sale?” The highlight of the trip is the plant buying. I have already written about my purchases, but I wasn’t the only one buying. My daughter bought several cactus plants in an effort to keep her cats from eating inside plants, and my sister bought many of the plants I did except in different colors.
But there were so many other great plants offered by vendors or grown by volunteers of the Botanical Gardens. I would have like to have taken more home.
They had sansevieria (mother in law tongue) that was in bloom. I have never seen this plant with a flower.
They had row upon row of dessert rose plants, all in different colors.
The orchids that were available were gorgeous.
It was interesting to see all the plants available, which is one reason I am looking forward to the spring show. With such a bounty of plants, it is a wonder I left with only seven new plants.
