At the sale, from 9 to 11:30 a.m., you will find the usual wide selection of perennials, shrubs and hanging baskets, as well as herbs and tomatoes, including heritage varieties.

Master gardeners will be in attendance to answer any questions.

After you are loaded down with your purchases, feel free to browse the craft display featuring AIDS angels and painted garden rocks and to enjoy a relaxing snack in the tea and coffee corner.
