On Saturday, May 11 the First Unitarian Universalist Society of Middleboro will hold its annual plant sale on the front lawn of the church at 25 South Main Street in Middleboro, from 10:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Flats of locally grown vegetables, herbs and annuals will cover the lawn that you may choose your favorite flowers and summer flavors. The Society’s gardeners have potted perennials from their own gardens to sell that you may choose among plants that have been successful under local conditions. Shoppers will find new varieties of old friends as well as new plants to try. Planting advice, and usually pictures, will be on display for each type of plant and knowledgeable gardeners will be on hand. As always there will be a beautiful selection of elegant hanging baskets perfect for Mother’s Day. Patrons are urged to come early to have the best choice of plants and to take time to talk “garden.”
Please see and share our Facebook event link below to invite all of your gardener friends to our annual event:
Please begin to dig and divide and put in pots contributions to our plant sale. Homegrown perennials are just a part of our sale, but they really help to make our sale special. All donations will be joyously accepted the week of the sale. Please dig generously! You may leave your labeled plants by the handicapped accessible entrance to the right of the church near the Memorial Garden. We will price all the plants and then organize them on the front lawn for sale on Saturday. Have more pots in your shed than you can possibly fill with treasures from your garden? Clean them up a bit, sort out the decrepit and crumbly ones, and place the good ones beside the church shed.
Mark your calendars now both to volunteer for setup, sales and cleanup the day of the plant sale, and to count on us to fill in your garden this season. If you can help us out or have questions or suggestions (love them!), please contact Maria Pucillo-Dunphy (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Mike Schroeder (email@example.com).
Hope to see you on Saturday!
