Plant Sale Table

We will have an in-club Plant Sale Table with plants & garden related items every month with exception of October & December.

Simple guidelines:

  • Pot-up desirable healthy plants from your garden.
  • Label each pot—a simple label will do.
  • Bring the plants (or tools) to Centennial Lodge early, before the start of the meeting. Deliver them to the person in charge of the sale table.
  • We will price the plants.
  • When you shop, be generous. Our prices are the suggested minimum.
  • There will be a clip-board for you to list any plants you plan to donate at future meetings. To enhance organization of the sale table, please utilize it.
