silly garden club
*laugh*. . . *sigh*
I went to a plant sale being held by a local garden club yesterday. The members were such nice people! But not nearly as knowledgeable about plants as I hoped. They were so sure that the daylilies, lilacs, and Siberian irises they were selling me were native, because they had "just grown there" as volunteer plants. (I wasnÂt certain if the first two were native or not until I got home and did some research, myself. Well, foo Â at least they were inexpensive.)
They also told me that they werenÂt selling anything invasive, at which I pointed out that they were selling barberry.
Is it illegal yet to sell barberry in Massachusetts?
Ah. . . anyway, I couldnÂt have met a more well-meaning bunch. I may drop by one of their meetings and see about joining up one of these days. Seems like they could use someone who has an interest in native plants.
Is anyone here a member of a garden club?
