So...what are you doing this weekend? If you live within reasonable driving distance to Portland...then you had better be going to Hortlandia!
As in the past few years, it's at the Portland Expo Center, and admission is FREE (although you do have to pay $8 to park).
There is a map/floor plan of the space available here. If you're like me, there are some boots you always MUST go to (Xera, Joy Creek, Dancing Oaks, etc.) This map will help you plot out your plan of attack...unless you're like me...then you wander around for an hour, totally overwhelmed.
While I'm going shopping with friends Saturday morning, I'll be working at the Plant Holding area on Sunday afternoon...so stop by and say 'Hi' if you're so inclined :-)
In case you were wondering, the photos for this post were taken yesterday at the fabulous Xera plants...and some of these amazing plants will be available to purchase at the sale tomorrow and Sunday!
I know I'm keeping an eye out for some of these amazing Pacific Coast Iris!
If I had space...a Manzanita would definitely end up in my shopping cart.
Speaking of which...there are no pets, carts or wagons allowed at the sale. Trust me...it's crazy-crowded...and guard yourself...those cardboard boxes people carry around can become weapons in the wrong hands!
And just remember, have fun, this sale is practically the highlight of the gardening year here in Portland...hope you see you there!
