- 11am: Make amazing things with dried gourds!
- 12pm: Growing bulbs to extend the bloom season in the garden
- 1pm: Discover the deer resistant plants
- 2pm: Attract those hummers like never before!
The kids can get in the flower fun as well making nature themed crafts like leaf masks, gnarly trees and autumn wreaths. The Barking Katz Band will be providing entertainment during the morning hours and Manito Park employee and pianist, Jed Wagner, will be playing from 11:30am to 4pm.
Seasoned plant sale veterans bring their own wagons, but there will be shopping carts available to fill with plants and spring bulbs. Visa and MasterCard are accepted. For a complete lists of the bulbs that will be available click HERE.
