We will begin the day at River Front Park in Salem, OR, for the annual Friends of Bush Park Spring Plant Sale.
We will arrive at opening time 10:00 a.m. so we have first chance at the choice varieties.
Check to see what Perennial Obsessions (Dave & Cynda) have in the way of sedum and other hardy type plants. They won't be at River Front Park, but can deliver to you at the clinic saving you shipping charges. http://perennialobsessions.com/
I know of two others that will be there, Wild Ginger Farm and Dancing Oaks, both have some unique, and hard to find plants that you will want to add to your gardens. This will save a lot on postage cost. Money you can spend on more plants. : )

Purchase in advance and have delivered to the Plant Sale saving postage.
Wild Ginger Farm http://wildgingerfarm.com/
Dancing Oaks Nursery http://www.dancingoaks.com/
Mountain Crest Gardens http://mountaincrestgardens.com/

Here is a link to further instructions on purchasing plants for delivery to the Plant Sale.

Washington gang we will have to get up early to make the plant sale or leave Thursday? I looked at the Red Lion and looks to be more affordable than the Dallas hotel.

Got this on the calendar.

@JungleShadows Kevin is Toby coming this year?
Just wondering if he was, maybe people could purchase plants online and he could bring them to the clinic?

You've put a lot of planning into this already. I'm really, really hoping I'm going to be able to get off work somehow. Sure would be wonderful to meet all of you in person!!

Well it is such fun to have you all come and look at semps. Hey, Bev liked it so much she moved here!

When the snow melts I'll get with the folks at Robert's and get a menu prepared. We generally do 4 different entrees and then have a salad and dessert choice. Everyone has a great time there too as we have the room to ourselves and we can visit.

You should have ample time to buy plants at various venues too. the Friends of Bush Park sale, and up at Sebright. After you see the landscaping at Sebright you might want to rethink your landscaping!

If I reserve a block of rooms at the Red Lion and generally they will give me a better rate if I do that. The Red Lion is just off the I-5 so it's easy to get to most of the places around town. They also have a great breakfast cooked to order.
