The Fall plant sale at Denver Botanic Gardens takes place Saturday Sep. 25 this year. Member-only shopping starts at 8am and I plan to be there. My membership allows 5 guests, so anyone who wants to join me let me know and we'll meet. For the uninitiated, the Fall sale is much smaller than the Spring sale, with a large variety of Brent & Becky's bulbs, and lots of plants dug out of the gardens of premier gardeners. Panayoti Kelaidis, Mike Bone, and volunteers are usually hanging around, available to anyone with questions or wanting plant suggestions. The goodies go fast, so early shopping is highly recommended.
DBG sale Sep 25
That sounds like a great place to shop! Wish we lived closer to that area. As it is, their plants would do so much better here, than plants bought at a big box store, at our altitude. lol
I am planning on being out on the front range that weekend. I have enough things to do & people to see to justify the trip. I would love to meet a few of you folks!
PS: Russian Sage, Blue Spires went on sale today at High Country Gardens. It was the plant I was looking for to anchor (literally) my bed expansion.

Do you think you'll be in town early enough to join us at the sale? I'm hoping to drum up interest in a get-together, but I won't be able to host it bc I'll be out of town until Friday evening. In past years we've toured DBG after the sale, then reconvened at a host's house for a potluck lunch and plant/seed swap. I can let you know what's planned, we're not all on Dave's any more.
On Friday I will be getting a new exhaust system put on the truck and then I have other business to take care of in the Denver area. Friday evening I will be staying at a college friend's house outside of Elbert. Saturday I will be visiting a friend that just moved back to Longmont from Vermont after several years...I am afraid the weekend is already filled up. :(
If there will be a similar gathering in the spring, I might be able to tag along. Hopefully by then I will have bought a house and will have a better idea of what plants to shop for. Thanks for the invite!
