"Everyone is excited about spring planting, says Susie Reynolds, Meerkerk's Nursery Manager. "We are already seeing visitors to the Gardens and Nursery asking rhodie questions and eagerly awaiting the sale weekend."
Susie has been busy all February prepping a new sales display area, installing a new tree bench in the retail nursery area, and potting up plants. This year Susie reports Frank Fujioka has once again provided Meerkerk with his gorgeous hybrids. "We are so fortunate to have Frank Fujioka as a Friend of Meerkerk, says Susie. "He provides the staff with
his years of experience and bring his special rhodies to us to sell in the Annual Spring Sale."
This year, Friends of Meerkerk receive not only their 10% discount during the Sale weekend, but they will get "Early Bird" access to this year's crop of hybrids and species on Friday, March 17th from 3:00 to 5:00,
Friends of Meerkerk members are encouraged to shop early and enjoy some wine and hors d'oeuvres while picking out some gorgeous new rhodie(s) for their gardens. "We wanted to thank our members this year with a special pre-sale event," says Susie.
