The Southborough Gardeners Plant Sale is an annual rite of spring, and this year it will take place on Saturday, May 7 at the Community House. Read on for more details.
The Southborough Gardeners will hold their annual Plant Sale on Saturday, May 7th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community House which is located at the intersection of routes 30 and 85.
Chairwomen Susan Pyne and Shelley Dropkin suggest that shoppers come early for the best selection of plants shared by the Gardeners from their own gardens as well as local nursery stock. All members are asked to donate eight plants to this sale, and some members provide more than 100! The Gardeners’ contributions of unique and rare plants for this event, year after year, demonstrate a true desire to share their knowledge of gardening with the community. Each year, the Perennial Plant Association’s Plant of the Year is featured at the sale as well.
The Plant Sale will include a wide selection of annuals, perennials and hanging baskets, which are all suitable for spring planting and Mother’s Day gifts.
Proceeds from the public sale will support town beautification and the Southborough Gardeners’ Scholarship Fund. A $2000.00 scholarship is given annually to a Southborough resident pursuing environmental studies or a horticultural field. Applications are available at the library.
