Pick Up Dates: Saturday. May 18, 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and Sunday May 19, 1:00 p.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Unlike our fall plant sale, this is a preorder-only sale. Pre-order plants from the following list and then pick them up and pay for them on May 18 or 19. If it’s impossible for you to pick them up on these dates, you can make arrangements to pick them up later that week. Payment is by cash or check. The pick-up site is in Westvale.

The $6 perennials, grasses and vines will be in 4″ pots, the $9 ones in 6″ pots. The tree and shrub prices are listed.

Order plants by emailing John Allen with the names of the plants you want and the number of each. Please use the subject line “Plant Order.” You will then be given directions to the pick up site.
