A proud supporter of our community in ON, Canada
We have made it through another very cold winter, the snow is melting and thoughts are about our gardens. While you are out in your gardens cleaning up remember to start thinking about what you can donate to the PLANT SALE!
The sale will take place at Westdale United Church, 1509 Sherbrooke St. West on Saturday, May 9th from 9:00 a.m. – 11:00 a.m. The church is located on the south side of Sherbrooke, just west of Woodglade Blvd. The entrance is at the back and there is plenty of parking. The church will be open from 6:00 p.m. – 7:30 p.m. On Friday, May 8th, to drop of your donations. WE NEED LOTS OF PLANTS – as many as we can get! This is the perfect time to divide those overgrown clumps and the end result will be a happier plant. As you work in your gardens, keep our plant sale in mind. Pot up your extra plants a week or two before the sale and keep them watered so they look their best. Larger pots (6inches or larger) sell the best. Please include as much information about your plants as possible – annual or perennial, sun/shade, height, colour, etc. If you have mutiple plants you could use your computer, print the label and attach to a popsicle stick or to the pot. This could save you a lot of time and effort. Please identify any aggressive plant. If you have any gardening magazines, garden decor to donate please bring them to the sale.
PLEASE DROP YOUR PLANTS AND ITEMS AT THE CHURCH FRIDAY NIGHT 6:00 p.m.– 7:30p.m.
Bring any extra clean containers or garden trays to the April meeting to share with those who may need them.
Thank you to all who have already signed up to help at the sale. If you want to add your name to the list, please sign up at the April meeting or get in touch with Anita Clifford to get added onto the list. Each person who has volunteered to help will be contacted by phone a week before the sale. Our plant sale will take place rain or shine.
Try to plant in 6 inch or larger plants. People want instant colour and large sells before small. We can also sell it for more. Special plants: If you are sending in plants that are special – i.e., named varieties, more unusual plants or a division of a plant that you purchased for more money – make sure we know! Those will be marked at a higher price.
For those who are donating plants….please let us know how much time you have spent digging and potting up your plants so we can add that time to our volunteer hours.
If you have any questions or suggestions please contact: Anita Clifford: 705-748-0267 firstname.lastname@example.org
