After Chad finished rounding this morning we met up at the Duke Gardens for one of their plant sales. We’ve heard about them in the past and were really excited to finally go and check it all out.
Of course everyone was super-friendly and helpful. The plants were all divided up into sections like full sun, partial sun, shade, native species, etc. For our front yard we knew right where to head.
Volunteers manned each section to answer questions and offer advice about which plants to take home. We definitely see how it could get confusing. There was LOTS to choose from, and these were not your standard home improvement store options.
We scooped up a Pieris Valley Valentine shrub for the front lawn and a couple of succulents for our kitchen window.
We left with a couple of unusual varieties and happy knowing that our $30 went towards a great cause.
