The 2021 Plant Sale
Plans are being made for a plant sale for the public on May 15, 2021. We will be using protocols for gatherings in place at the time of the sale. Stay tuned for further details. We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
The 2020 Plant Sale
Due to the COVID 19 pandemic no public sale was held in 2020. A members only sale was held to share plantings which will be used for the 2021 public sale. All proceeds of this sale help us maintain the town’s municipal gardens and allow us to continue our projects and donations.
Thank You for Making the 2019 Plant Sale a Huge Success!
This past sunny Saturday the Groton Garden Club brought a huge selection of perennials, locally grown organic herbs, and heirloom tomatoes to Town Hall parking area for the annual plant sale. Mother’s Day tea cups containing succulents and directions for their care were available as well. It was another outstanding plant sale, following Groton Garden Club tradition. The Club is grateful to everyone who worked to create the sale, and who supported the Club and its works by purchasing plants on Saturday.
