The South East Wisconsin Master Gardener Perennial Plant Sale is this Saturday, May 22nd, 8am, at State Fair Park's DNR Area.
I had heard about these sales, but never attended until last year. My, oh, my, what an event! All I can say is GO EARLY!
A shark feeding frenzy comes to mind, but the Master Gardener's ran the sale like a well oiled machine. They have the plants organized by type and you can ask for directions.
Most plants are between $2 and $5 each. It was fun just to be witness to so much gardening enthusiasm, but of course I picked up a few things too. My treasures are pictured at the end of the slide show.
There is no charge for admission. I parked on the street, but remember you must carry all that you purchased to your car. Have fun.
