Garden Club Holds their Annual May Plant Sale

Unique Shopping Opportunity for Plants, Botanical Art and Garden Décor

Now that spring is finally here (thank goodness), it’s time to start thinking about our gardens and landscapes.  So, mark your calendar for the Long Grove-Kildeer Garden Club’s annual plant sale, held at Reed Turner Nature Center.   Dates are Saturday, May 18th from 9am to 4pm and Sunday, May 19th from 10am to 2:30pm.  

Unlike retailer plant sales, this is unique in that there are hundreds of perennial plants for sale that were actually grown in the Garden Club members’ gardens.  These are tried-and-true performers for our local soil and climate.  Plants include grasses, flowers and vegetables. 

Varieties of heirloom tomato plants are always a big hit at this sale. There will also be varieties of milkweed plants.  Milkweed is the only plant that the endangered monarch butterfly will lay their eggs on.  You can help stop the decline of these beautiful creatures by planting milkweed in your garden.

The award-winning Reed-Turner Botanic Artists will be selling their botanical artwork, including originals, prints and cards.   These works of art will brighten your home all year round.

Every garden needs more than just plants.  Garden décor, whether to place in the garden or to display on walls of garden sheds or patios, brings further interest to your outdoor space.  It can also serve to set apart different garden beds or borders. The Club will have a variety of outdoor decorative items, offered at very affordable prices.

We invite you to come out and see for yourself.  The Reed-Turner Nature Center is at 3849 Old McHenry Road in Long Grove.  For additional information, email Kathy at kathymichas33@gmail.com
