Nursery Tour May, 2022

Better Late than Never. Pics from a wonderful Nursery Tour in Faribault, MN, planned by Jill B. Thx Jill for helping us make our wallets a little lighter.

On May 26 the members of the Minnesota Herb Society boarded a bus and headed to the Faribault area to participate in our Annual Nursery Tour. This was a much anticipated trip for many as we have not been able to travel for 2 years.
Our first stop was Donahue’s Greenhouses. Many clematis plants were purchased as this is what Donahue’s is famous for. Next we traveled to Twiehoff Gardens. This place is under new ownership. Personally, I was very impressed with the variety of tomato and vegetable plants they offered.  We had lunch at the famous Depot Bar and Grill. We were greeted by the chef who happens to be a special friend of a personal friend of Nora Stewart’s!!  After lunch we visited Farmington Gardens in Farmington, MN. They were ready for us and we had a very enjoyable time.  Always needing a little refreshment after a long day of garden/plant shopping we then traveled to Jordan, MN. We had a wonderful time tasting sparkling wine and enjoying dessert at Mousse Sparkling Wine Co.  It was a wonderful day and we are all looking forward to doing this annually again!          Jill Boettcher
