Prince George, B.C.- It was a case of  you snooze, you lose,  at the annual David Douglas Botanical Society’s plant sale.

The sale started at 10 this morning at   UNBC,  but long before the  sale opened up,  there was a long line up of  gardening 2015-05-17 10.00.36enthusiasts waiting for the opportunity to   purchase  some of the  plants offered for sale.

They came with  wagons and boxes,  bags and carts,  all ready to load up on the  plants that were available.

“The response this year has been incredible” says volunteer Doug Willoughby.

Annuals and perennials  were  set out in  groups of shade loving,  sun loving,  shrubs and trees.  Not only was it an opportunity to  find some  plants that are perfect for the Prince George  climate, but  with several master gardeners on hand, there was an opportunity to get some good advice.
