Back by popular demand! RG&C will hold a plant sale on Saturday, June 2, from 9 to 1:30 at the Farmer’s Market in Adams Park.

We’ll be selling plants from our own members’ plant divisions, including perennials, edibles, and shrubs. We’ll probably also have a small selection of garden decorative items.

If you are dividing plants this spring and have some to share with us (no wild orange daylilies, please), please consider potting them up and labeling them for us to sell to benefit our public green spaces. Our customers especially appreciate unusual plant varieties. If you need plastic pots, we can supply them.
