Local Plant Sales 2012

Ladies and gentleman, sharpen your shovels and trowels. May is plant sale month in Maine, and my annual list of Maine plant sales, which follows, lists an amazing  25 sales.  Sadly, I’m sure there are more of which I remain ignorant. The majority of these events are fundraisers for local worthy causes.  Bring boxes and small bills.  Go  forth and plant!

    Oooooo! Hostas and daylilies! That’s for that, Ali!

  2. Michelle Says:

    Ummm, I meant ,THANKS for that, Ali.
    I can claim it’s the brain injury, right?

    • Ali Says:

      Hope the injury is healing. Do I need to page Dr. McDreamy? Maybe we need to carpool to the hosta sale… although there’s only one Empress Wu!

    That’s a lot of plant sales. A bit far for me to travel to, though. :-)

  4. Laurie Graves Says:

    The lovely month of May! Now, if only the rain would slow down. At least a little.

  5. Robin Says:

    Wow, that is a fun list. We just picked up some veggie starts from a local youth farm charity. I LOVE spring gardening sales!! Ok, so maybe I just love spring and summer because it sure beats the cold rainy months. :)

    New to your blog but the Dresden Elementary School holds a plant sale every year, it starts roughly the first week of June and the proceeds benefit the nurse’s position and one other. A very worthy sale, indeed.
