BIAN Plant Sale
The Big Island Association of Nurserymen will hold its semi-annual plant sale at the Edith Kanakaole Tennis Stadium, in Hilo, on March 6, Fri. from 5 pm to 9 pm & March 7 from 9 am to 2 pm. This sale is usually a good opportunity to buy fruit trees and unusual varieties of ornamentals. In previous years they had some gorgeous vireyas for sale, like the one you see here. But of course you have to get there early, before the primo plants are gone.
Admission is free, and part of the proceeds goes toward funding scholarships for agriculture students attending University of Hawaii at Hilo. There will be educational booths, too, including Hawaii Island Master Gardeners who will be on hand to provide info on fruit fly trapping.
