Toronto Botanical Garden plant sale is on now!

Oops, I forgot to post earlier that Toronto Botanical Garden's plant sale is now underway. It is every day from now through Saturday, May 9, and is open 10am-5pm, at TBG, 777 Lawrence Ave. East (at Leslie; served by TTC bus 54 Lawrence East from Eglinton Station, directions available here).

Unfortunately they don't seem to have posted a plant list this year; unless you count the vague "[c]arefully selected annuals, perennials, succulents, native plants, ornamental vegetables and heirloom favourites". Last year I picked up Aquilegia canadensis (wild columbine), Coreopsis lanceolata (lanceleaf coreopsis), and Geum triflorum (prairie smoke).

There are lots of lovely plants to enjoy at TBG anyway; on the weekend I saw as well as the usual daffodills and Muscari a very pretty pale yellow magnolia in bloom, various natives including Hepatica, Trillium grandiflora and Dicentra cucullaria, and much more which I can't remember right now. Right next to TBG is Wilket Creek Park, always worth exploring, especially now with so many spring ephemerals in bloom!
