The continued Fall Plant Sale preparations started in earnest this morning as we had a great crew of volunteers arrive to help set up the sale and price the thousands of excellent plants we’ve brought in this year. We had additional deliveries today and will finish our pricing and “layout tweaks” yet tomorrow. with another crew. Giant mums are only $8 this year and perennial asters (seen directly below) are only $5! See www.rotarybotanicalgardens.org for more information on this fundraising event. RBG Members are invited to the Members Only! Pre-Sale on Friday, September 11th (9 am – 4 pm) where they get the best selection and a 10% discount that extends over the duration of the sale.
The entire grounds crew was here again today. Suffice it to say that Cindy, Cheryl, Bob, Larry, Terry, Big John and Janice had myriad tasks that revolved around watering, garden work and lots of plant sale preparations. Actually, everyone helped to some degree or another with the plant sale which included the unloading of three more deliveries and some serious watering. The teamwork was exceptional and RBG is lucky to have such a great grounds crew. This time of year is “full speed ahead” with no shortage of tasks for our talented grounds staff.
