Annual Garden Club Plant Sale

By Staff | May 6, 2013

The Potomac-Mecklenburg Garden Club will hold its annual plant sale on Saturday, May 4, from 9 a.m. to noon in the Garden of Trinity Episcopal Church in Shepherdstown.

Club members supply a large selection of perennials and small shrubs from their own gardens and those of friends. Shoppers can expect to find popular natives, such as cone flowers, twin leaf, and bee balm, a wide variety of spring and summer blooming perennials, ornamental grasses, flowering shrubs and more. These local offerings will be supplemented by hanging baskets and herbs from a local commercial nursery.

While making plant selections, customers will have an opportunity to choose from a selection of free gardening pamphlets and educational materials. Club members will staff a table to answer general gardening questions and provide growing tips for customer’s purchases. Customers will also have an opportunity to purchase locally produced Duchess Apiary honey and chat with the beekeeper

Purchases will not only enhance customers’ own gardens, but will enable the club to continue its efforts to enhance the community through donations to Shepherdstown Library landscaping and maintenance of a section of the Town Run Garden. Proceeds from the sale also fund a college scholarship and book donations to local school libraries.

The club meets on the 4th Wednesday of the month at St. Agnes Parish Center and welcomes new members. Contact Aileen Boyd at aileenboyd@verizon.net.
