PLANT SALE – SATURDAY, JUNE 8, 2019 10AM to 1 PM

RG&C will hold a plant sale on Saturday, June 8, from 10 AM to 1 PM.

This year will be a bit different as we will be at the homes of two of our members and NOT at the Farmer’s Market in Adams Park.

The sale will be at 53 Prospect Avenue and 5 Sheldon Street (just a few houses from each other). Sheldon Street runs from Cummins Highway (across from the Irving Middle School, just a short jaunt from the Farmers Market) to Prospect Avenue.

As usual, we’ll be selling plants from our own members’ plant divisions, including perennials (both sun and shade loving), edibles, and shrubs. We may also have a small selection of garden decorative items and, perhaps, some gardening books.

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 (sticks are great but even masking tape on the pots is OK) for us to sell to benefit our public green spaces.  If you need plastic pots, we can supply them. We’d like them delivered to us no later than Thursday, June 6.

Thank you for your support and we’ll hope to see you at the sale.

Armchair Gardening – 2019 (Wednesday, March 13, 2019) at 7:00 PM

We’re in the last throes of winter so we need some inspiration to remind us spring is on the way. To that end, Roslindale Green & Clean is hosting an Armchair Gardening presentation on Wednesday, March 13, 2019 at 7:00 PM at Roslindale House (120 Poplar Street). This breath of spring or summer near the end of winter takes us on a tour of the du Pont gardens of Delaware and Brandywine Valley in Pennsylvania – Longwood Gardens, Winterthur, Nemours, Mt. Cuba, and Eleutherian Mills.

Carter Wilkie will guide the tour.

Admission is free.

Light refreshments will be served.

Please join us for this event.

Anyone who can knows, or can figure out, how to dig a hole with a trowel, drop a bulb in the hole, and then cover the hole back over can help with this work so feel free to join us.
