Each year about this time, the ladies of the Mountain Garden Club and their helpers gather a fabulous inventory of native plants to be sold to area residents for their gardens. These plants are grown locally so they are acclimated to our local climate and with just a little watering and care should flourish.
The sale starts at 9 am on Saturday May 29th at eh Ball Field in Highland on Highway 64 (The Cashiers Road), about three blocks from Main Street Highlands. There will be a huge variety of hostas, perennials, shrubs, herbs, flowering bushes and more. Heirloom tomatoes will be a very popular plant again this year and will be limited in the number of plants available. The number of plants and the variety of species continues to expand each year.
Garden Club members will be on hand to advise buyers about planting and caring for the plants they buy. The will also be able to tell purchasers about likes and dislikes for various plants, plus where they should be planted for best growth.
The proceeds from the sale fund the club’s many community projects, esp[ecially scholarships for students pusuing a degree in the field of horticulture, landscape design, forestry management, or golf course management. The funds also support the wonderful butterfly garden at the Highlands School and the gardens at the Fidelia Eckerd Living Center.
Shoppers should come early for the best selection. The Club will provide wheelbarrows and wagons and helpers to load up your plants. This is a great opportunity to have beautiful landscaping or a lush garden this summer. Remember it is cash only to buy, no credit cards.
