For Mother’s Day, forget those overpriced cut flowers that will wither in days. Instead, head to the Mountain Lakes Garden Club Plant Sale on Saturday, May 13, the day before Mothers Day, to snag some gorgeous potted perennials for your mom and grandma… and for yourself, too! The Club’s annual Plant Sale runs from 8am – 11:00am at Island Beach.
The Plant Sale’s broad selection of hostas, ferns, peonies, daisies and other perennials, natives, herbs and shrubs are certain to flourish in Morris County gardens because they have been thriving in Garden Club members’ own gardens before they decided to share their bounty. This year, the Plant Sale will also feature an array of annual baskets and planters – perfect for gift giving and beautifying your own yard.
If you are a novice gardener or need some gardening inspiration, the Plant Sale is the perfect place to get started. Experienced gardeners are on hand to identify the plants and their ideal growing conditions, as well as share tips on planting combinations and care that will help you create your own gorgeous garden beds.
You’ll want to arrive on time for the best selection, as you won’t find more robust, hardy, healthy natives, perennials, herbs, and shrubs that thrive in our area at such great prices anywhere else.
Following are some of the plants that are expected to be available: coneflower (Rudbeckia), hosta, iris, liriope, lamium, rose campion, lambs ears, bleeding heart, shasta daisy, ferns, sedum, herbs and vegetables, peony, phlox, daylily, catmint, rose, chrysanthemum, Russian sage, anemone, astilbe, bee balm, heuchera, lady’s mantle, lobelia, columbine, and dozens more!
Proceeds of the plant sale, the Garden Club’s largest fundraiser, are used for gardening education and to enhance Mountain Lakes’ parks and public areas, which are lovingly planted and tended by Garden Club volunteers. For more information, visit https://www.mlgclub.net/
