Plant Sale: rain did not keep shoppers away!

While there was a lot of rain for our plant sale this year there were also interludes that allowed for comfortable shopping and shoppers did come out. We are still waiting to hear what the gross sales came to on Saturday.

Setting up behind TDawgs Friday afternoon

Rain held off during Saturday morning setup
Our new friend Nancy helped with setup! Thank you Nancy!
 Thank you to everyone who helped with the plant sale. We can't do it without you!!


Reminder: HWY 70 sign planting is on Thursday, May 31 at 5:30 pm

Hope everyone had a great Memorial Day weekend!!

We will be planting annuals at the HWY 70 sign this week Thursday at 5:30 and will hopefully be going out for burgers afterward. Kris? If 5:30 doesn't work for you come when you can. 

Dress to get dirty, bring you favorite garden cleanup and planting tools. It will be hot so bring water, a hat and sun protection.

Many hands makes light work! The more the merrier!! Be there or be square! Better late than never!

It will be a fun event. Here are a few highlight from past plantings!

Great Fun at the 2018 Potting Party

Nine members gathered to pot up plants for the annual plant sale at Kris' tonight. As usual we had a great time. Here are a few snaps to attest to the fun.

Member gardens are a little behind this season so if you will have plants to pot up, Kris has soil, pots and labels available. Giver her a call or an email (715-689-2333 henning@grantsburgtelcom.net) to arrange pickup at her house or other location. Let's make this the best plant sale ever!!

A little garden club humor!

If you have 4", quart and gallon pots we can always use those. Shrubs sell well too so if you have some small shrubs that will dig up well, bring those along with perennials.
