By lavender at May. 4. 2015.

      plant saleThe  Down to Earth Garden Club will be holding its annual plant sale Friday, May 22 from 7:00 a.m.-5:30 p.m. and Saturday, May 23 from 7:45 a.m. until 12:30 p.m. The sale will be held at BMP Systems, Inc. 1263 Maple Ave. This near the intersection of Maple Ave. and Shaffer Road. We are a non-profit organization and all proceeds go to the upkeep of landscaping and gardens in the area.

      Plants are sold by pot size and pots are measured at the center diameter. No plants will be held unless they are paid for and the group cannot be responsible for plants left overnight.  All plants are grown locally and adapted to our climate. Most of them have been overwintered in the pots and have well developed root systems. Some few have been dug this spring but should thrive as they are being dug before they are in full growth. Number of each variety varies. There may be one or there may be many.

      The plant list is tentative and will change as the inventory progresses. We will try to mark new additions with asterisks and will be happy to answer your questions via email at   Happy hunting for your favorite plant!
