Fall Plant and Bake Sale

Fall Plant and Bake Sale

Our PLANT SALE will be held before the September meeting 11am-12:45pm. Please bring your plants at 9:30am so that we can organize and price them to have them ready for the sale. Label your plants with name, sun or shade, blossom color, perennial or annual. We’d like healthy plants in good condition and prefer 4” pots or larger but nothing as heavy as a large tree. Bulbs, nice pots, or garden accessories are also welcome. We always have a great variety of succulents and will have Master Gardener grown tomatoes and peppers. The BAKE SALE will be set up indoors; bring your items as early as possible so they may be priced and displayed. Please wrap your cakes, cookies, breads or jams attractively and label if they contain nuts. If you do not have plants to share, baking is a great way to contribute.
