Hey, how did the sale go, well did you go? If so, how was the selection of plants and the crowd?

Yes I went. Light rain started falling around 9:00 am. There was a nice hardcore plant crowd at the gate. The rain was getting more pronounced but the gates remained closed until the 9:30 am opening time. The rain came down very hard as we were let in. In retrospect, it would have been nice if the garden would have allowed us to seek shelter under a tent inside.
There was a wonderful array of all kind of plants to suite any plant lovers fancy. Those who had interesting and unusual plants did very well sales wise. Carts were jammed full with great stuff. Fairchild had at least 50 carts available and it was not until the lunch time that any unused cart was spotted. Then after the lunch hour, another wave of plant lovers emerged out of the food court area - sales were once again brisk.
Considering the early rains, I would say the crowd was impressive. The selection, quality, and pricing of the plants for sale was spectacular!
