Scholarship Garden Plant Sale
November 23, 2019
8:30a - 1p
Family Garden Club
1852 Whispering Pines Circle
Our upcoming scholarship plant sale will be held on Saturday, November 23 at Paul’s garden located at 1852 Whispering Pines Circle in Englewood. The sale hours are from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. This street is located off Englewood Road (highway 776) just next to the Lemon Bay Plaza (with the Big Lots store) and across from Englewood Isles. Signs will be on the road indicating where to turn.
I asked our master Gardener, Jim Chandler, for some information about the plants available for the sale. He says, “looking for some replacement plants which expired during this summer’s heat wave? Or are you just looking for something a little different? You are invited to visit our sale on Saturday Nov. 23 to look for new or additional plantings.
We offer several varieties of Copper Leaf, Brazilian Red Cloak, with those huge burgundy colored spike shaped flowers, and a few Starburst Clerodendrum. Some other plants that will be available include Dracaena Marginata, Bromeliads, Succulents, and host plants for butterflies, such as Cassia, Snow Bush, Turks Cap, Fire Bush, and plenty of those Milk Weed plants to feed the Monarchs! Also available are some Stoplight (red, green & yellow) Crotons which have recently been potted. But, they are without roots and need to remain in the pots two to three months for root development (with adequate water, of course and a little water-soluble plant food). Always follow the directions on the plant food bottle or bag.”
At the sale, if you have questions, please ask one of our knowledgeable members who will surely have the answer. All plants are locally grown with most started in the back yards of our members.
Proceeds from the plant sale will go to the Lemon Bay High School Scholarship Fund. In May 2019 we awarded two $1,000.00 scholarships at the awards ceremony. At the past twelve awards ceremonies the club has donated $25,000 by way of your purchases and generosity. We plan to hold several plant sales throughout 2020. Please check our website for the future dates as they are planned.
