THE green-fingered gurus behind the Black Isle Horticultural Society are gearing up for this weekend’s plant sale with huge enthusiasm.
It takes place Saturday at Gordon Memorial Hall in Rosemarkie, from 10:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.
BIHS Secretary Graham Sullivan said: “We are delighted to be able to hold our sale again and we have many plants that we will be selling at affordable prices. We are sure that whatever type of garden you have, you will find something that will interest you. And we won’t be setting everything up at once when the sale starts – whatever time you arrive, we expect to have a good selection available.
At this popular event, the plants for sale are donated by members and friends of the horticultural society, so they are grown locally by interested gardeners. Browsers can be sure that in addition to plants accustomed to our environment, the wide range will include many interesting and unusual types.
In addition to a few common ornamental and edible plants, avid gardeners will be able to find special herbaceous and alpine plants, wildflowers to make your own meadow, tomatoes for the greenhouse, soft fruits and unusual vegetables – like kale and the Daubenton tree. spinach – as well as houseplants.
