Wildflower Bunch Plant Sale a blooming success

By Bonnie Plikaytis

Once again the folks of Big Canoe turned out in force to support the Wildflower Bunch (WFB) Plant Sale. Despite the cold temperatures and wind on Friday, shoppers were happily purchasing plants to enhance their gardens. Peggy Dickey and her husband Dave were the official greeters of the event offering a hot cup of coffee to take off the chill. WFB members were on hand to eagerly share their gardening experience with novice gardeners to provide an informed shopping experience.

As in the past few years, Whispering Springs Nursery was the most popular vendor enticing gardeners with their large variety of plants, whimsical fairy gardens and beautiful container gardens. Their variety of flowering trees was very popular among shoppers this year.

A new vendor this year was Night Song Native Plant Nursery from Canton. Owner Katy Ross brought a selection of hard to find native plants propagated using sustainable methods. She also shared her knowledge on the advantages of native plants and their influence on the ecosystem.

The Wildflower Bunch Garden Club thanks the Big Canoe community for their participation in the sale and making it a very productive endeavor. The WFB proceeds from the sale will be used to support community projects.

The next Wildflower Bunch Garden Club event is the Garden Tour to be held June 2 and 3. To purchase tickets, visit the Wildflower Bunch website at http://www.wildflowerbunch.com/.
