Start here

And finally……

Thank you for visiting and purchasing plants at Wake-Robin. We have enjoyed seeing old friends and making new ones.

Until the next time,

Kind regards,

A final open day (and then au revoir)

On Saturday from 10 am until 3, we will present a final selection of our eccentric plants for 2013. All plants (and we keep finding more) are priced at 50% off to enable us to make room for propagating new plants.

Not all members of the mint family are rapacious spreaders. These three are much more polite. From the top: Lamium orvala, Meehania urticifolia, and Lathyrus vernus ‘Alboroseus’.

Morning, after the rain

We still have lots of plants for our second open weekend. I am potting up seedlings of a number of things, including Virginia bluebells and three species peonies. Although small, they are inexpensive. And, go figure, we still have Trillium sessile left as well as a few lady-slippers.

It promises to be a soggy day on Saturday, so a gardening day it will not be. Stop on by.

Sanguisorba hakusanensis, Disporum maculatum, Hydrophyllum virginianum, Trillium pusillum, Cardamine waldsteinii, and Pulsatilla vulgaris
