This morning I made a trip over to the Virginia Master Gardener’s Plant Sale @ the Learning Garden in Yorktown. I’ve been going to this annual sale which is held in May for the past three years and I wouldn’t miss it for the world. Three years ago I met a previous Virginia Garden Blogger there for the first time, you know her as Janet @ The Queen of Seaford. It runs from 9-12, but people get there early and the line gets long in no time. Everyone was chatting about the Yorktown Onion which grows freely on the Colonial Parkway in Yorktown, Virginia. They limit one plant per family and it’s the only place where you can one legally. The wild ones are protected by law from gathering or collecting. Fortunately I was lucky enough to get one of these again this year. The bulb is in the orange pot and the foliage has died back but it will sprout new green leaves come fall and hopefully bloom next spring. That’s what happened with the one I bought 2 years ago, so I’m crossing my fingers for the same results this time around too. I also picked up a Blackberry Lily (Belamcanda chinensis), Blue Vervain (Verbena hastata), and Wine two-toned Bearded Irises. Now it’s time to find a home for my new babies, so happy gardening everyone and have a nice weekend and Mother’s Day!!!
