Friends School of MN Plant Sale

Post by jnspire » Mon Apr 02, 2012 9:19 pm

There is a plant sale being purported as: "the largest fundraising plant sale in the United States!"

There will be over a Million plants in about 2,300 varieties (not just C&S).
There will be a 'Cacti of the North' exhibit.
Details here: http://friendsschoolplantsale.com/garde ... i-of-north" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

So, I figured that someone here might be interested in this.
The show is being held on the Minnesota State Fair Grounds on Mothers day weekend.
All plants will be half price on mothers day!

This page lists some of the cacti and succulents that will be at the show.

Also, the actual ad on the Minnesota State Fair's website is here:

Unfortunately, I have obligations during that weekend.
But, if anyone from Minnesota or North Dakota might be going I would be interested in hiring/acquiring a buyer!

Interesting. I don't think I will be going, however.

Fair enough Daiv. :)

I have discovered that there are a moderate; but, relatively high number of Northern North Americans on here!

I think in many homes the "mom" in the family is the one that goes for the plant/garden sales. Not so here. Mother's day at a plant event would be all about me. So the timing isn't good from that standpoint for me.
