Garden club holds fall plant sale

The Salt Spring Garden Club is holding its Fall Plant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 14.  

Garden Club members have dug up their extra plants, divided their perennials, and donated a great variety of beautiful plants to the club’s annual sale.  

People should come to the Farmers’ Institute on Rainbow Road from 1 to 3 p.m. on Saturday to get some of the best plant deals they will ever find.

This year’s plants include lavenders, fig trees, tiger lilies, bee balm, hardy fuchsia, clematis, lots of hydrangeas, salvia (drought and deer-resistant), kinnikinnick and dianthus, and lots more. The Cornucopia Table will have fruits and veggies, and there will be books and garden tools available as well.  

The sale is open to the public starting promptly at 1 p.m. People should come early for the best selection.
