Get you cart ready! The VanDusen Garden’s plant sale is back!


This Sunday is VanDusen Botanical Garden’s plant sale! This will be my second time attending the event, widely considered to be the largest plant sale in Metro Vancouver! Last year I was 2nd in line, which made the whole thing all the more exciting. This year? Well we will see where I land, but you can be sure I’ll be in that line up early Sunday morning with a coffee in one hand and my little green cart in the other! I hope to see you all there!

    I have only gone once and didn’t have a cart. It was quite a feat to carry my new pond liner around and back to the car. Silly girl. I did get some lovely plants that were quite new to the lower mainland. Alas they have not survived the tough life over at my house.
