CAMDEN — Plant sales fill the calendar every May into early June in Midcoast communities. This year, the Camden Garden Club is expanding gardening possibilities by offering a Fall Plant Sale, Saturday, Oct. 1, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The club’s master gardeners have long preached that Fall is the ideal time to divide, transplant, and share perennials that are over-growing their allotted space in the border. Roots have time to get well established before winter as rains are more frequent and temperatures moderate; and plants start growing again in spring while the soil is still too wet for gardeners to walk on.
This sale will offer potted divisions from member gardens at the American Legion at the corner of Pearl and John Streets in Camden. All proceeds benefit the club’s Scholarship Program for area students majoring in horticulture-related fields.
For more information, call Sherry Cobb, 785-2086.
