Last Update: I hope everyone is ready cuz I've got tons of goodies for you.  First reminder, I live in Silver Lake...parking can be crazy so please prepare yourselves to be brave and find yourself some residential street parking.  Believe me, your efforts will be rewarded!  Next up, please bring bags, boxes, plant carrying apparatus because you will need them for your purchases.  As far as pricing goes, most seedlings are $1 (to support the Plant Provocateur's efforts, I will also have several seedling offerings that will be (4) quantity for $1.  I bought in some super cool stuff from Annies Annuals that ranges from $5 - $10.  Many are 4" plants, some are 1 gal.  The cost covers the shipping costs of getting them here for you (since you probably wouldn't be able to find it anywhere else!).  I'm also doing a little house cleaning...I will be offering many plants that just need to go to good homes.  It's time for me to do a plant purge.  Some super deals await you.  Please be advised, I am your only cashier so please be prepared for a slight wait when purchasing your items.  Looking forward to seeing everyone.  Please introduce yourselves because this event is also about creating a super cool plant community.  See you Sunday. Viva La Plantas!

Update: Did I mention that if you arrive between 12:30 and 1pm I will be giving you a ticket for a book giveaway?!  For anyone interested in winning a prize, I will be giving away an AWESOME new book on Growing Heirloom Vegetables!!!  Say it isn't so.  Well it is.  Be sure to get your ticket and stand by for the announced winner at 1pm!
