GET READY FOR FALL GARDENING AT THE MIDDLETOWN GARDEN CLUB PLANT SALE
Middletown...The Middletown Garden Club will stage a fall plant sale as part of the Wadsworth Mansion Open Air Market, Sunday, August 22 from 9:00 a.m. to 4:00 p.m. at the Mansion.
The club will be offering a variety of usual and unusual plants for the fall garden and landscape as well as bargain divisions from members’ gardens. Members will also take orders for a specially selected daffodil bulb collection and for their popular holiday amaryllis blooms.
Here in New England, gardeners wait patiently through the winter for the emergence of flowers, the greening of trees and the smell of freshly turned soil. When the earth finally awakens, they head out to their favorite garden centers and plant sales to purchase plants that will adorn their properties for the coming seasons. Many buy whatever is in flower, plant it, and call their work “done.” Their gardens are beautiful in spring and summer, but what about fall? Why not make this the year that you plant a glorious fall garden?
The discerning gardeners in The Middletown Garden Club will help you with fall plant selections and offer advice about their bargain perennial divisions. Whether you are adding to your fall landscape, planting with next spring in mind, or holiday shopping, this sale has something for you. Mid-August through mid-September brings perfect planting weather for many favorite New England plants.
