Pick up one or two of this year’s Challenge Plants at PHS (20th and Arch streets) in the Shows Department for $7 each and nurture them until showtime in March. Then bring them to the Show, amaze your friends and colleagues, and perhaps win a ribbon.
Here are the plants that are available now (a third, a Pelargonium, sold out yesterday):
CLASS 2999: Lavandula x ginginsii ‘Goodwin Creek Grey’—Judged Saturday, March 5 (you could also plant this woolly treasure in your garden)
CLASS 3999: Streptocarpus ‘Purple Martin’—Judged Tuesday, March 8
Of course, if they’re in good shape, you can enter them in other classes on the other judging days.
Come on over and get started. First come, first served.
