We're holding a One-Day Sale on Saturday June 7 for all those who missed our spring distribution, or just want to add to their own piece of the urban forest.
We'll have Red Cameo and Ginger Gold apples (buy one of each and you'll be covered for cross-pollination), figs and assorted others as we clean out the stock area.
Trees are $10 each except for the Rainbow's End White Spruce and Baby Blue Colorado Spruce which are $20.
No advance purchase necessary...just show up with cash or credit card and buy your trees. Come to 1250 East 45th (at Inverness) for the sale from 10am to noon on Saturday, June 7.
