The NG was stocking up on those plants that you should plant now, rather than when the box stores tell you you should plant them - Strawberries!
Wildflower sale on the Member's Only sale solely to get possumhaws, of which, they were sold out of by the time I got there 2 hours after opening. Based on the recommendation of a coworker who said that she got hers at NG, I headed over there after hitting the Wildflower sale. And lo, the Natural Gardener did indeed have possumhaws - a bunch of them. AND! Even better! I was able to get 3 for $75. I only got 3 because that's all I could fit in my car, so I'll have to go back sometime to get the last one. It is also at this point that you learn how helpful the workers can be - I went to 3 independent nurseries on the north side, was obviously looking at trees and not one of them asked if I needed anything. Here, I was asked if I wanted help at every turn (of course for most of my trip I was just wandering around). When I was asked the second time whilst looking at the trees, I asked how they know whether they have female or male trees. I was informed that they only propagate the female trees because there are always male trees around and once you start getting seedlings, some of them will be male trees thus furthering the process.
I recommend you go enter Pam at Digging's Independent Nursery give away - this week it's a gift card to the Great Outdoors on South Congress.
