June 5 column: Friends of Manito plant sale

Ooh, ooh, ooh! TheĀ Friends of Manito plant sale is next Saturday (June 11) and you don’t want to miss it! Here’s a link to my column about the sale in today’s edition of The Spokesman-Review: Add color to your garden with perennials from Friends of Manito.

If you live in the Inland Northwest, you are probably very familiar with these plant sales. If you aren’t, they are well worth attending because TFM does a great job of offering thousands of outstanding plants that will grow well in our region. And not just any old plants — we’re talking exciting new releases with amazing colors and textures.
