We perform "plant digs" from gardens of local residents who might like to thin out their perennials or remove them from their gardens altogether. If you would like us to "dig" from your garden, contact us at 887-5131.
We sold over 1,000 potted perennials! Thank you to all who supported us, but especially to our hard working plant sale committee!
This year's plant sale follows the same successful format as our 2020 and 2021 sales. Held at a member's driveway, the sale will span the first two weekends in June. Appointments are required. Call 887-5131 to reserve a slot.

Members donate plants from their own gardens. The club provides the soil and pots. In addition, we perform "plant digs" from gardens of local residents who might like to thin out their perennials or remove them from their gardens altogether. If you would like us to "dig" from your garden, contact us at 887-5131.
All our members participate in our sale by digging and potting plants from their gardens or from gardens around the area. They bring the potted plants and set them up at the sale location. They keep the plants watered and healthy until they are sold. On plant sale days, members assist with plant selections and questions.
The plant sale frequently also features a wide selection of organic herbs and vegetables from a local New Hampshire farm.
Buyers can pick from hundreds of perennials and gain valuable advice from knowledgeable club members.
A few weeks after the plant sale, SGC collects used plant pots to recycle for the following year's sale. We have a pot collection weekend so that the community may donate their used pots, which we then clean and store.
After the plant sale members look forward to their annual BBQ in a member's garden to celebrate the great success of the sale.
