We’ve made many changes to our plant sale this year, but this is one we definitely weren’t  planning on!   Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Suburban Garden Club’s May 6th Plant Sale will be held at the Cheshire Youth Center at 559 South Main Street rather than on the Congregational Church Green. The Youth Center is located 3/4 of a mile south of the Green adjacent to Cheshire High School.

  The ever-popular Suburban Garden Club Annual Plant Sale returns  on Saturday May 6 with three big changes:

  1.  We will be selling beautiful, professionally grown plants not previously available at our sales.  Rather than selling member-dug perennials, we will be selling a selection of quality annuals and perennials grown by environmentally responsible local growers in sterile soilless mixes.  We will also have a limited selection of tomatoes, herbs, lettuce and other vegetables. 

  2. Shop for gifts for Mother’s Day, Nurses Week, teacher gifts and more.  In addition to gift-ready houseplants in decorative containers, we will also be selling a variety of items hand-crafted by our members, including lavender sachets, earrings, gardeners’ hand scrub and handmade cards.  And with most gifts priced below $10 you can get your shopping done and keep your wallet happy!  Our popular tag sale also returns, with a selection of gently used garden related items.

  3. Come and learn!   Connecticut Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your gardening related questions, including questions on pests and diseases.  Sustainable Cheshire will provide information on composting and Boulder Knoll will delight us with a focus on herbs. Lights Out CT will help us understand more about the needs of moths and pollinators and Quinnipiac Valley Audubon will inform us about plants that attract birds to our yards. 

 

Our hours have also changed:  Please note that the sale is starting later this year—9:00 AM—and runs until 1:00 PM.

Proceeds from this sale fund a wide variety of civic activities.  Thanks to your purchases at previous sales, we just awarded a $2,000 scholarship to a 2022 graduate of Cheshire High School who is studying architectural landscape design.  Your purchases also fund the planting and maintaining gardens around town for all to enjoy and offering educational programs focused on increasing knowledge and interest in gardening and relevant environmental issues.  We are very grateful to our customers who support our plant sale each year!
