      The Down to Earth Garden Club will hold its annual spring plant sale Friday, May 16 from 7:00 a.m. to 5:30 p.m and Saturday, May 17 from 9:00 a.m.-1:00 p.m. at BMP Systems Inc.,  1263 Maple Ave. near the corner of Shaffer Road and Maple Avenue. There are over 120 varieties of plants at the last count. Total number of plants will be close to 1000. These are not seedlngs but well grown perennials of all sizes. All will grow in our area because they are grown in our area.  Prices are by pot size and the rare and expensive daylily will be going for the same price as the plain Jane one. (Although we warn you that Jane will probably grow better!) A partial list follows. More plants are coming in everyday and this list is not complete. There is at least one of each variety listed here. Most have multiples and some have many.  The irises are multicolor but we just don’t know which is which. The donor could not say and they weren’t in bloom when dug. There are a few orchids this year. Contact us at and we will try to answer questions.  New plants will be added to the list as we are made aware of them. A few of the plants may have not be in condition to sell so they will not be offered.
