Find Great Plants for Your Garden at Great Prices, May 14

In Chester CT Events on May 7, 2016 at 7:57 pm

Chester Land Trust and Chester Public Library are teaming up to sponsor a Plant Sale on Saturday, May 14, featuring locally grown and native plants.

Chester residents are dividing their perennials, digging up their tree seedlings, and potting up extra houseplants to donate to the sale. Many of them are potted in clay flowerpots, which once were used on an orchid farm in Haddam. An area garden center is contributing native perennials and mixed vegetable flats.

All donated plants will be sold at very reasonable prices, with all proceeds from the sale benefiting the Land Trust and the Chester Library.

The sale will be from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the Carini Preserve on Water St. (Rte. 154), next to the public parking lot at 20 Water Street. Master gardeners will be on hand to answer your plant care questions. More information is available at the library (860-526-0018).

A few of the plants from Chester gardens you will find at the sale:

Phlox paniculata

Shasta Daisy


Hemerocallis ‘Stella d’oro’


Pachysandra terminalis
