NW Fuchsia Society’s Annual Sale – April 5th

The Northwest Fuchsia Society’s annual fuchsia sale will be held this year on Saturday, April 5, from 9 AM to 1 PM at the CUH (the same room where we hold our bulb sale).  This is the best place to find a very large selection of fuchsia starts, from several growers, at good prices.  They are usually organized by whether they are hardy or tender, upright or trailers, and there are usually some species fuchsias.  Most have pictures of what they look like.

As usual, get there early for the best selection.

To research your purchases in advance (never a bad idea), you can look at the NWFS Website:
