Spring brings annual plant sale to Castlegar

Castlegar Garden Club annual plant sale Saturday, May 3

  • Apr. 17, 2014 5:00 a.m.

Step into spring at this year’s annual plant sale.

The Castlegar Garden Club is once again holding its annual plant sale Saturday, May 3, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. at the Castlegar Station Museum.

This annual harbinger of spring is your chance to satisfy your garden lust and passion for plants with a dazzling blend of horticultural gems, all affordably priced.

Start your 2014 gardening season with scintillating new specimens to savor.

For those who yearn with nostalgia for the ‘old days’ or those that like to electrify with the new and extraordinary, there is something for everyone.

The ‘Collector’s Corner’, always a favorite, features plants from some of the Garden Club’s many notable plant collectors.

The Castlegar Garden Club encourages a spirit of camaraderie. Members with an excess of plants team up with members who have time and energy, but a shortage of plants. These Dig, Divide, and Pot Parties are hard work, but fun for all. Garden experts will be on hand to answer your questions and look forward to assisting you with your plant selection.

 

Meetings are the third Wednesday of the month at the Castlegar and District Community Complex. For more information call 250-365-0150.
