The fall plant sale at Tower Hill was a success. I didn’t expect to sell loads of plants as there wasn’t anything in bloom at the time! but I did have photos of each plant in bloom and so many visitors to my booth exclaimed at how helpful they were and that they added alot to my offerings. I also got lots of compliments on how healthy my plants were so that made me feel pretty dang good!
Following are just a few photos I took of my booth and it looks very much like my spring sales booth…..
I brought a small selection of Primula with me, non were in bloom at this time of course, but I did sell a few and talked up our spring Primula show on the first weekend in May at the gardens.
Those large tropical looking leaves are from the Sauromattum venosum or Voodoo Lily. they are very easy to grow and increase quickly. I think they are hardy to zone 6 so I overwinter them in the pot in our basement with no water all winter.
I also had a few smaller plants of Arisaema fargesii & sikokianum which sold quickly. I have lots of seed pots of many Arisaema species growing as they are very easy from seed.
I bought a hanging clothes dryer as a more portable displayer for the knits. It worked ok but I would like to find one made of wood and possibly vintage, but for now this one will do. the larger wood display stand my good friend made for me will go to The Blossom Basket in Middlebury where I work part time in the winter. I did get a special order for a scarf from a nice lady that I am now working on!
My next upcoming sale will be at the Berkshire Botanical Gardens on saturday September 21st. The New England Primula Society will be holding their fall meeting that day with plans to work in the Primula garden and discuss the spring show. Please come if you can as I’ll be bringing a selection of Primula and their woodland companions.
Thanks for visiting and come back soon!
