Marion Garden Group Plant Sale to be Held May 14
Mark Your calendars!
The Marion Garden Group, is hosting its bi-annual Plant Sale on Saturday, May 14 9am – 12noon , at Bicentennial Park, located across the street from the Marion Art Center.
The plant sale is a wonderful community service, providing a wide variety of plants at fabulously low prices. Plants will range from as little as $3.00 to $10.00.
Members have been digging, dividing, and repotting a wide selection of beautiful perennial plants, herbs and shrubs that have thrived in their local gardens as well as in the town gardens sponsored by the garden group. In addition a wonderful selection of popular herbs and veggies have been started by Chrissy Maier especially for the sale.
“We have a generous supply of hardy and well established plants,” reports Liz Hatch, President of the Marion Garden Group. They include lily’s, daisies, trees, ornamental grasses, astilbes, russian sage, mums, iris, hydrangea, roses, sedum and ferns and much more!
“How wonderful that these plants,” says Ms. Hatch, “will provide years of continued enjoyment. They have been proven to thrive in our coastal climate and sandy soil. What a pleasure to prepare these plants to share with our neighbors at such an affordable price. It certainly is a community service and labor of love to bring this to the townspeople.”
Plant information and pictures will be provided for most of the varieties for sale. In addition there will be an informational component to warn and inform about one of our biggest dangers in Marion – Ticks! Come buy and learn!
The plant sale has been a popular event, typically selling out quickly. Mark your calendar and come early.
All proceeds from the Marion Garden Group sale benefit the town.
