5/20/2017 - Annual Spring Plant Sale

The Southbury Garden Club’s 17th Annual Spring Plant Sale will take place on Saturday, May 20th at the Town Green Gazebo on Main Street from 9:00 a.m. – 1:00 p.m., rain or shine. The sale is one of the oldest and largest in the area.

The sale will feature unique annuals, perennials, shrubs and hanging baskets suitable for both sun and shade. Most are local or CT grown, and many are deer resistant.

May 17th is the official last frost date locally so purchases can be planted directly into the garden.

The sale will also include a wide array of plants from members’ own gardens. These plants are especially suited to local conditions and feature varieties not always found at garden centers and nurseries.

Because of the increased interest in growing family food organically, this year's sale will include a wide assortment of veggies and herbs from “The Farm” in Woodbury.

Club members, many of whom are certified Master Gardeners, will share gardening tips, assist in choosing suitable plants and discuss individual gardening problems.

The Bake Shop will feature homemade cakes, cookies and snacks from members’ own kitchens.

This year’s raffle will include among the prizes, a fully stocked picnic basket, a large garden-themed prize, and a succulent dish garden from Shakespeare’s Garden in Brookfield. Tickets are one dollar each or six for five dollars. You do not have to be present to win.
