Fran and Andrew Bonitini's


Come help prepare for the spring native plants sale!  Potential new members are welcome to join in the fun!

Enjoy a wonderful early spring afternoon at Fran and Andrew Boninti’s spectacular garden to experience the awakening of masses of spring ephemerals and help pot goodies for our upcoming plant sale. Fortunate for us Fran’s prolific native plantings can supply us with the well-developed divisions of customer favorites that will be ready in time for our sale on Apr. 29. For our work area Fran has the perfect setup with movable platforms to accommodate us outside or indoors to escape adverse weather.

No experience is necessary, we’ll instruct. It’s as simple as planting in the pot at the same depth as the plant was originally growing. All supplies will be provided. Do bring your pruners for cutting small roots and dried stalks. To supplement Fran and Phil’s divisions you may bring divisions or seeded in extras from your garden of popular natives of sellable size. Some plants we need are Robins plantain, foamflower, purple coneflower, and amsonia. While there should be an ample supply of pots on hand, your extras with 4” to 5” openings will reduce our need to restock new pots.

The fun begins 1:30 pm at Fran and Andrew Boninti’s, 2505 Holkham Dr. that’s off of Owensville Rd. in the Ivy area west of Charlottesville.
