Trees $8 and more; shrubs $5; perennials start at $1; Northwest native plants $3 and more.  This is such a fun garden–well worth a visit if you have never seen it before.

2.  Camas-Washougal Community Garden Club Plant Sale: 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. May 1. Perennials, annuals, vegetable starts, herbs, trees and shrubs. Boy Scout Hall in Crown Park, Northeast Everett Street and 15th Avenue in Camas.

3.  Mother’s Day Plant & Garden Fair: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 8 in downtown Camas. Plants and garden accessories, plus Kids Zone. Presented by Columbia Gorge Chapter of American Business Women’s Association. Funds go to scholarships for local women returning to the work force. http://www.cwplantfair.org.  Parking downtown is not easy to find, so it’s better to park on one of the side streets and bring a little wagon or cart with wheels to get your purchases back to your vehicle.

4.  Master Gardener Foundation plant sale: 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. May 8 and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. May 9 at WSU Agricultural Research & Extension, Unit, 1919 N.E. 78th St., Vancouver.

See you at the sales!

    I just got back from the Camas garden club plant sale–it was great as usual. I got a hosta with great leaf texture, and a blue-flowering tradescantia, or spiderwort. Hosta will go in the shade created by a big red climbing rose and a purple clematis, and the spiderwort will go by a variegated sage that has yellow and green leaves. Good day to transplant, too, because it’s misty rain and cooler temperatures.
