Sale Location, Behind the House:
 
  • It is supposed to be HOT in the days leading up to the sale.  In order to keep up with watering (1,500+ pots!) we’ll be setting up the sale in the shade on Roxanne’s decks behind the house. 
     

  • Look to the provided map for guidance on parking, drop-offs, loading plants and those with mobility concerns.
     

Trays, boxes and totes:

  • We would REALLY love it if you were able to bring your own trays, boxes, totes to carry away your plant purchases, we just can’t provide that number of trays to everyone. 
     

  • Lindsey highly recommends the cardboard produce boxes from Aldi for this, very sturdy! 
     

  • Amazon boxes are great too! 
     

  • If you have any trays to spare and want to share, PLEASE drop them off ahead of time or bring them with you.  
     

Signage:

  • We will have the plant info printed and displayed with the plants to aid in shopping.
