The Hardy Plant Society of Oregon provides opportunities to visit a bevy of personal gardens and specialty nurseries every summer through its OPEN GARDEN directory. This is one of the major selling points for joining this wonderful group. What could be better than strolling through the garden of another plant lover, chatting with them about their challenges or favorite plants, and learning tips about how to care for that plant that you never can seem to grow. And for those of you with busy weekends, there are opportunities to visit many of the gardens on Monday evenings—a real summertime treat!
Don’t we all appreciate a little Inspiration and encouragement? Join the HPSO and you will be richly rewarded, not only in the summer but all year long.
