Raleigh Garden Club Blue Winner

In case you didn’t know or if you thought it was a mad  house and not worth the effort, think again!  Most of the plants used in creating these beautiful display gardens are for sale after the fair.  Just show up around 10:00 on Monday after the fair (October 27.)  There will be people at each entry tearing down the displays and they will tell you what is available and how much.  Plus other goodies are for sale – just ask!  About 4 years ago, I bought my Bottle Tree from Tammy Kennedy.  Her husband Pete, a welder, made it from re-bar.  It now sits proudly in my butterfly garden covered with bottles purchased from the flea market.

This after the fair plant sale is one of Raleigh’s best kept secrets!
