berkshire Botanical Garden Plant Sale May 7-9


Mom like plants? Better yet does mom like really cool gardens? The Berkshire Botanical Garden in nearby Stockbridge, MA is holding its' annual plant sale Mother's Day weekend.
What I find really cool about this botanical garden is its' lack or pretentiousness. This is a botanical garden whose "products" could be done by anyone at home. On the way over stop by and visit my friends at Ward's Nursery in Great Barrington.  
 
 
Here is an excerpt from Berkshire Botanical garden's web site about the goings on at the plant sale:
 

May 7
8 a.m. – 11 a.m., members only

At the two-day sale, gardeners can choose from thousands of plants, shrubs and bulbs, many of which are grown right at Berkshire Botanical.  Members receive early buying privileges on Friday and a 10% discount throughout the weekend. New this year is a Garden Tag Sale offering pre-owned tools, pots and treasures.
