The Men’s Garden Club will have a Pre-Spring Garden Plant Sale on Saturday, May 7 starting at 9:00am and going until 1:00pm. The garden plant sale will be held at a member’s garden located at 1852 Whispering Pine Circle, Englewood, FL 34223. This street is located off of Englewood Road (highway 776) just next to the Lemon Bay Plaza.
We have a variety of specialty plants, hanging baskets, colorful Bromeliads and Cordylines, Geraniums, Ground Orchids, Kalanchoe and Red Copperleaf and many others. Many in the $3 to $10 range. There is something for everyone! See flyer
As in the past, the plants were propagated for this plant sale to raise money to fund a Lemon Bay High School scholarship and other local community projects. There is still time to establish most of these varieties before you head north for the summer. Stop by early for the best selection.
