What is it all about?
The Society hosts two plant shares a year in the
fall and spring. The objective of this event is
for Society members to share excess plant material with other
members and provide information about plants, their cultures and
habits. Plant advisors are on hand to answer questions and help
them find the right plant for the right location in your garden.
Gardeners bring in their excess plants to share and plants can be
purchased for $3.00 each.
In order to better serve our members, this will once again be a
members' only event. Please make sure your membership is up to date
