Drop off locations for plants:

For those who have plants to donate, but are not going to the sale themselves, you can drop off plants ahead of time to the following two members locations:  Home of Linda Nishikawa or Ann Williams.  See the last email from newsletter@ottawarockgarden.ca for Linda and Ann's addresses and contact information for plant drop off.

List of plants we will be selling (will be updated as drop offs are made): OVRGHS plant list for sale

 

For those members wonder if they should go to the sale, or who have never been, here are a few tips:

 

It is advisable  bring cash, small cash, loonies, toonies , $5. and $10 bills,  not $50. $100, or even $20. Bills, many booths may not have a square or internet access, so as to accept credit. And they run out of small pettycash fast with customers coming with large bills from banking machines.

 

There is a wide arrange of vendors, from various clubs/societies like us , to in and out of town vendors.

 

Dress according to the weather, as this is an outdoor event.

 

Bring a tote or something to carry plant in/on, as you may need to park a little farther away.

 

For those members who have friends also looking to buy plants, spread the word.

Attached is a spreadsheet with some examples of what we will have at our booth.

This is just a small sample, as many of our donators are still preparing plants, and have not

been able to summarize a list. A special with be Hugh Hope very rare yellow Clivia, at a very

special price, see picture also attached.

 

I am so looking forward to seeing our members again at this event.
