Our annual plant sale
fundraiser will be held on Friday, May 10 and Saturday, May 11 at the
First Lutheran Church (corners of Frederick and Chatham Rds).
This sale will include many natives and other hard –to-find perennials
for both shade and sun gardens. The added attraction this year will be
of over 60 registered day lilies, donated by Fred Briscoe, the Ellicott
City day lily grower. We will also be sharing some of the cuttings of
hosta, and acuba from our Whipps’ gardens. This is a new feature
we want to share with the public. We also invite you to share any extra
and small shrubs you are dividing with us for the sale. All plants will
be happily bought by other gardeners at reasonable prices. The
money will be used to
maintain and keep the gardens growing and glowing. For more
information, contact Aleta Gravelle at firstname.lastname@example.org.
