Since 1985 the Vagary has grown quality perennials, native plants, and herbs for sale in the Minneapolis/St. Paul Twin Cities area. We sell plants from our home at plant sales and at a few special events in the Twin cities area. We also sell plants by special order, and we do some custom growing.
It's still early in the 2015 season, but activities are now underway. We are currently planning on having our Spring Plant Sale on the third and fourth weekends in May.
Saturday and Sunday, May 16th-17th
Saturday and Sunday, May 23rd-24th
We will be open from 9 am to 2 pm each day.
We are also planning to attend a couple of special events in the Twin cities area in 2015.
In the past few years the Vagary has begun to focus on pollinator plants, especially plants that support the Monarch butterfly population that spends the summer months in Minnesota and migrates to central Mexico for the winter. While there are many plants that serve as a nectar source for Monarchs, other butterflies, and other pollinator insects, milkweeds are especially important because they are the only plant that acts as a food source for Monarch catapillers.
Minnesota Milkweeds for Monarchs is a summary of six popular species of milkweeds native to Minnesota that we sell. It includes good information on why milkweeds are important, which species are best suited for various landscape settings, and general information on growing milkweeds.
