The annual Medfield Garden Club Spring Plant Sale is set for Saturday, May 18, from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m. at the Unitarian Church, 26 North Street, Medfield. The sale features perennials from members’ gardens, including many varieties of flowering and foliage plants, edibles, succulents, small shrubs and gently used gardening articles. Massachusetts Master Gardeners will be on hand to offer advice for plant selection and care.
Proceeds from the Spring Plant Sale help to support the Medfield Garden Club's year-round seasonal beautification at numerous public buildings, intersections and entry points in the town. The club maintains twenty-three planters and garden sites and decorates town buildings with holiday greens and wreaths. A spring favorite is the Medfield Garden Club’s partnership with the Medfield High School Art Department to create Art 'N Bloom. Members of the Medfield Garden Club also volunteer to bring garden therapy to the residents of the Thomas Upham House and to provide special holiday arrangements to Medfield Meals on Wheels clients.
Medfield Garden Club informational meetings are open to the public and cover a broad range of topics, from native plants and pollinators to shade gardening, orchids, drought resistant species for New England landscapes, houseplants, container gardens, vegetable gardening in small spaces, organic pest management and guided tours to local horticultural sites. The Medfield Garden Club welcomes new members.
Members of the community are encouraged to attend this opportunity to support their local garden club and bring new life to their gardens. Attendees should come early for the best selection. Contact Rebecca Stephenson at firstname.lastname@example.org for further information.
