Welcome to the Vagary

Monarch visiting the Vagary

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.

2015 Spring Plant Sale

Spring Plant Sale

The last weekend of our Spring Plant Sale is Saturday and Sunday, May 23rd and 24th. We will be open from 9 am to 2 pm each day.

Our Spring Plant Sale offers the widest variety of plants available from us during the peak planting season, with attractive quantity discount pricing. Some varieties are sold out, but we still have a good selection of perennials, natives, and herbs. However, our selection of tomato and pepper plants is very limited.

Remember that as a small family-owned business we stay competitive by keeping our business costs low. We have chosen to avoid the additional cost of accepting "plastic" money. We accept cash or personal checks for payment. We are not able to accept credit or debit cards.

We are also planning to attend a couple of special events in the Twin cities area in 2015.

Minnesota Milkweeds for Monarchs

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.
