Garden club holds perennial plant sale, auction

The Rockford Garden Club’s major fundraising event of the year is a great time to stock up on quality plants. Garden club members sell their homegrown assortment of “garden goods” including perennials, native plants, ground covers, quality small bushes/shrubs, annuals, herbs, bulbs, and vines. Members will be on hand—many are master gardeners—to answer questions and assist with your gardening questions and selections. Funds earned from the plant sale go for community enhancement projects and student scholarships. Check out the new location, with easy parking, near the new Community Gardens—rain or shine.

This year’s sale will be Saturday, May 21 at 350 N. Main Street, enter off Lewis Street. The sale begins at 9 a.m. with an auction of remaining plants beginning at 10:45.
