The Best Private Plant Sale in Maple Grove

Carmen Ouverson and her neighbor, Carla, have been putting together what I consider to be the best private plant sale in Maple Grove – and it’s happening right now.  Today, Carmen will open her garden to about 300 people eager to shop a staggering selection of perennials.  The sale begins at 7:30am and lasts until 6pm.  It runs Thursday, May 30th and Friday, May 31st (2013) or until the plants run out. (They do, by the way)

The sale is located at:
9125 Kingsview Lane N
Maple Grove, MN  55369

 

At the very least, you should go to see Carmen’s garden. Let me give you a little preview…

Carmen grows some things that many gardeners would not even try in our climate. She is very thoughtful about placement and she is a master at pruning.
