Hi All! I hope everyone had a great 3-Day weekend! Before I forget I wanted to let my faithful readers know that Scott Arboretum (at Swarthmore College) is having a Groupon sale today. Their BIG plant sale (which only happens every other year) is scheduled for September 17th & 18th and they always have lots of amazing perennials, shrubs and trees. I was very surprised to see them offering a Groupon special.
$25 will get you a year long membership (normally $40) and a $10 coupon for the plant sale. If you have ever considered joining this is a really good opportunity, never mind that it gives you access to the Plant Exchange in the spring. **I was alerted that this Groupon is only for getting into the Plant Sale on the First Day NOT for a year long membership. That was very deceiving and makes this Groupon NOT worth it! Admission to the plant sale is free on the second day for everyone. Sorry for the confusion!
Also I saw at the end of last week that our Home Depot has put their gallon perennials on sale for 3 for $10. Hard to say what is left after the long weekend, but if you are in the market for some perennials it is worth a look!
