hardyannual_bblueWhat to do first?  3 of my favorite gardening events are scheduled this weekend. 

Here’s a link to the PAX sale at NCSU. Click on woody plants on the right to see the list of shrubs they plan to offer

And the Garden Conservancy Open Days are in the Spring now:

Note that the  fabulous Joslin garden is open. I will have to revisit that old favorite and pick out one or two more gardens on the list. 

At the State Fair grounds, a cluster of great sales by local garden clubs:

If you like Azaleas, the Gardeners of Wake County sale will take your breath away.  I  prefer the Raleigh Garden Club Sale which usually has plants shared from members ‘ own gardens.  They do very well in my Wake County woods.list_3

So grab your hat, a check book and get out there.  April 13 and 14 is a great weekend for local gardeners.  Enjoy!
