It’s time to start thinking about your garden, and the Southborough Gardeners are here to help. Check out the details of their annual plant sale to be held on Saturday.
The Southborough Gardeners will hold their annual Plant Sale on Saturday, May 12th from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Community House which is located at the intersection of routes 30 and 85.
Chairwomen Jayne Grieco and Penny Healy 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 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 and are due by April 27th.
