The Spotswood Trail Garden Club in Greene has a solution for last minute Mother’s Day shoppers - on Saturday, May 11 the club will be selling living plants.

From 9 a.m.-noon at the Greene County Visitors Center in Ruckersville, community members can peruse through available plants and garden accessories.

“We will have trees, shrubs, perennials, annuals, bulbs, house plants and herbs,” President Kip Cain said. “There will even be some garden accessories.”

All plants have been grown by club members, Cain noted.

“We know they will grow well in Greene County because they have been grown in Greene County. If you have any questions about the plant, the gardeners can answer your questions and give hints on adding them to your own home, kitchen and landscape,” she said.

For 60 years, the Spotswood Trail Garden Club has given garden beginners and experts alike a chance to regularly share ideas and plants and to learn more about gardening – especially in Virginia. They are members of the National Garden Club and Virginia Federation of Garden Clubs-Shenandoah District. They work to keep Greene looking green and appealing to residents and visitors alike.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the clubs mission of “conservation, community beautification and education.”
