Big Changes Ahead For SGC Plant Sale

Big Changes Ahead For SGC Plant Sale

The ever-popular Suburban Garden Club Annual Plant Sale returns to the Cheshire Congregational Church Green on Saturday, May 6, with some big changes.

The biggest change is that SGC will be offering a variety of plants not previously available at the annual sale. Rather than selling member-dug perennials, SGC will be selling a selection of quality annuals and perennials grown by environmentally-responsible local growers in sterile soilless mixes. There will also be a limited selection of tomatoes, herbs, lettuce and other vegetables.

Representatives from the Connecticut Master Gardener Association will be on hand to answer gardening questions.

This year the SGC sale will include a “May Market” featuring a selection of items perfect for Mother’s Day, teacher gifts, and more. In addition to gift-ready houseplants in decorative containers, SGC will also be selling a variety of items handcrafted by members, including lavender sachets, gardeners’ hand scrub and handmade cards. The popular tag sale also returns, with a selection of gently-used garden related items.

The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For more information, visit
