I can't visit this nursery without feeling the ghosts (friendly ghosts) of all the Garden Bloggers who were there for opening night of the 2014 Portland Garden Blogger's Fling. The folks at Pomarius rolled out the red carpet and it was a night to remember.
It's amazing how much the plants in front of the nursery have grown.
My table was just inside the entrance, so I got to chat with most of the folks who came by, it was great (masked and outdoor) fun. After a year of very little social interaction I was ready for this.
My neighbor vendor was Polly’s Pottery. In addition to having fabulous things (which I managed to resist because Andrew claims I already have too many ceramics, and he may be right) she was also great company.
I snuck away to shop and photograph as much as possible. This skunk cabbage was huge! It was nice to know you can successfully grow them in a large boggy container.
Did you spot the "boneyard" next-door?
This table is very inspiring. I think I could make something similar.
Succulents! And a killer display table.
Lookie there! A huge daphniphyllum...
Another vendor, Madre...
Pomarius is carrying Dustin Gimbel's artwork. If that name sounds familiar it might be because I shared photos from my visit to his garden: here.
JJ DeSousa (Digs) was also at the event and brought her four-legged friends.
Just a few more photos...
Look at what a small amount of soil that large plant is growing in!
I was thrilled to find a 1-gallon Mahonia x media 'Marvel' and quickly snapped it up.
And I was shocked to leave with both of my pickaxe plantings unsold.
You just never know what is going to catch someone's fancy and it wasn't these. Now can I resist the temptation to keep them for myself?...
