May Event

Song Sparrow Farm’s Open Greenhouse Sale and Tour
Saturday, May 12, 2018 from 8-Noon

Southern Wisconsin is fortunate to have a nationally known peony breeder and perennial nursery in Klehm’s Song Sparrow Farm. Though it is located just east of Janesville, Song Sparrow usually only operates by mail and on-line orders. Once a year, for just half a day, it opens its doors for the general public to visit, tour its facilities, and shop for high-end perennial plants. 

To get a glimpse of the goodies, check out the website: If you fall in love and there’s something you just have to have, reserve what you want by placing an advance order for pick-up on the 12th. (Advance orders must to be placed by May 6, 2018.) You can still add to your purchase that morning, and you won’t face disappointment on what you want most. Sadly, most peonies are only available for fall planting, but they may have a selection of potted ones available at the sale. 

The address is 13101 East Rye Road, Avalon, WI. Bring your gardening buddies and meet up with other RPMGA members. We’ll gather at Song Sparrow at 9:00 a.m. If you can’t make it till later in the morning, come anyway. It’s a wonderful event!
