Thanks to all who supported our plant sale; it was very successful! We started out with 1,016 plants that included perennials, annuals, succulents, trees, bushes, ground cover and grasses. We were basically sold out by 10:15 a.m., and there were only a few house plants left. There were a total of 166 customers who bought plants.
Mark your calendars for next year's plant sale, April 25th, 2020. Our sale is always the last Saturday in April.
Thanks again for your support.
