The South Schuylkill Garden Club is holding their annual Plant Sale this Saturday, May 21 from 7:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. at 46 Avenue C, Schuylkill Haven (across form the school complex). There is parking behind the Medical Arts Building. All plants are donated by club members (so you know they'll be just perfect for our growing zone). There is definitely a little bit of everything (mostly perennials): tomatoes, peppers, native plants, daylilies, herbs, hostas, sedum, shrubs, small trees, cannas, gladiolas and dahlias (my favorites!). Prices start at $1.00
Knowledgeable gardeners, Master Gardeners, members of the Monarch Butterfly Society and members of the Daylily Society will al be there to answer questions and give advice. The club accepts checks and cash but NO credit cards.
Also, if you'll be bringing along a non-gardener -- there will be food to purchase. Whoever isn't browsing the plant offerings can purchase hot dogs, BBQ, coffee and homemade baked goods.
If you want to go a little further afield looking for additions to your garden drive to Hawk Mountain where they'll be holding their Spring Native Plant Sale on Saturday, May 21 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday, May 22 from noon to 4 p.m. There will be about 300 species of natives: trees, shrubs, wildflowers, vines, ferns and ground covers. Gardeners will be available to help you make the right selections for your garden and help you transport the plants to your vehicle. There will also be lectures and live raptor programs at 11 a.m. and 2 p.m. on both days.
