Friends of Manito fall plant sale on Saturday

Don't forget that the Friends of Manito fall plant sale is this Saturday, Sept. 7 from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. If you are a member of TFM, you can get in at 8 a.m. and shop while there is the best selection. You can read more about the sale by going to the post about my column, which ran in Sunday's newspaper.

One of the things I didn't have room for in my column was a list of the fall bulbs they'll have for sale. All are hardy to at least zone 5, but many are hardy down to zone 4. Plant sale manager Janis Saiki shared the bulb list with me and at her recent talk about the sale. Here they are so you can do a little research, figure out where you can pop in some bulbs, and make out your shopping list!
