Four Flags Garden Club to host spring plant sale

Published 10:13 am Wednesday, April 20, 2016

The Four Flags Garden Club will host a Spring Plant Sale from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, May 7, rain or shine, at the Riverfront Park Amphitheatre in downtown Niles.

Organizers are asking people to enter off of Front Street at Sycamore Street.

Club members will be offering established plants for sale from their gardens.

Prices will range from $2 for 4-inch pots, with gallon pots at $4 or three for $10. Some prices may vary.

Plant-related decorator items will be available as well just in time for Mother’s Day.

Organizers say this is also an excellent opportunity to meet local gardeners who enjoy talking about their favorite hobby. They can offer suggestions for what plants would work best in the shade or sun, and what combinations would be unique and appealing.

The Four Flags Garden Club offers an opportunity to anyone who wishes to learn about planting, pruning, landscaping with perennials and annuals, or beautifying specific areas around their home or community.

Maintaining the gardens at the Niles Historic Amtrak Depot is the club’s major community service project.

The group meets monthly on the third Tuesday at 7 p.m. at the Niles Law Enforcement Complex.
