Happy Gardening from Bill & Sharon Wilgenhof

A reminder that we welcome visitors to the garden through out the season.


Our annual spring plant sale is a popular event among gardeners in the area. It offers the chance to try some new and unusual plants along with the mainstays.  
The propensity to plant more than one really has room for is ever with us. A reminder that our plants will be variable in both size and number. 
Plants are chosen as surplus items here and there, or from plants that have volunteered!
