CHESTER, Vt. – Spring is here, and gardens are calling for attention. The Chester Plant Sale is scheduled for Friday, May 31 and Saturday, June 1, 9 a.m.-3 p.m. on both days, and Sunday, June 2, 1-3 p.m. The plant sale will take place on the side lawn of St. Luke’s Church, 313 Main Street, Chester. Plants featured are hardy perennials from Vermont gardens, as well as some special, hardened annuals that are hard to find locally. The plants offered are top notch and ready to go into the ground without additional hardening!
A group of knowledgeable gardeners has been working to dig, pot, and groom the specimens. A wide variety of generous pots with fresh soil and weeded plants await purchase at bargain prices. Some of the favorite offerings are varieties of iris, hosta, daylilies, perennial geraniums, Lamb’s Ears, Shasta Daisy, Black-eyed Susan, Hens & Chicks, Sedum Autumn Joy, coral bells, baptisia, Chinese astilbe, Lady’s Mantle, raspberries, rhubarb, peonies, many kinds of herbs, some shrubs, and so much more.
In addition, there will be information on invasive insects and pollinator plants, Gardener’s Log Notebooks, one-of-a-kind watercolor notecards featuring flowers and birds, homemade jams and preserves, and seasonal produce, if the weather cooperates. Also present will be knowledgeable gardeners eager to give advice on plants and garden design.
Ask any of last year’s attendees. This plant sale is worth the trip. For questions, please contact Lillian Willis at 802-875-1340 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
