Coming up . . .

Planting time - - finally

Garden centers and nurseries are fully stocked, of course, but gardeners have other places to shop, too. Check out neighborhood garden sales. You might find some out-of-the-ordinary plants and be able to walk home.

For example --This Saturday, the Eastmoreland Garden Club (Unit 1) is holding their Annual Mother’s Day Weekend Plant Sale. Drop by Eastmoreland Garden Park (at the corner of SE Bybee Blvd. and 27th Av., across from the Eastmoreland Golf Course) between 10:00 am to 2:00 pm.

You’ll find a wide variety of perennials, tomatoes, native plants, and more. Plus, it’s a family-friendly event with a children’s planting table. Local gardeners will be on hand to help you find some thing new for spring. All proceeds will be used to promote gardening in the area.

So, keep your garden eye out for the new and unusual - right in you own backyard.
