Down to Earth Garden Club​​

Plant Sale  ~  Annual Fundraiser
Despite the snow...and rain...and snow...
and rain...and snow...and rain...and snow,
we're still holding our annual
Down to Earth Garden Club Plant Sale!
The 2018 DTEGC Plant Sale will be held on
Saturday, May 12,
at Woodland Christian Church (at Woodland and Kentucky Avenue) in Lexington.
The sale will start at 9 a.m. and
continue through noon.

​​
Every May, the Down to Earth Garden Club holds its annual plant sale fundraiser. The plants we offer are transplanted from our own gardens, so we can offer advice on their growth habits and landscape uses. The money we raise is used for our civic project at the Waveland perennial garden. Additionally, we give back to the Bluegrass community by making donations to local garden and conservation projects
(see our Grantees page).

​​
You will find a lot of native plants at our plant sale. Native plants require little fertilizer and are more resistant to pests and pathogens than cultivars, so their use can reduce the amount of chemicals introduced into our environment. Many native plants also establish quickly, are vigorous growers, and require less water. They provide food sources for birds and many beneficial pollinators displaced from disappearing Kentucky habitats.

​​ 
Please be aware that we may have limited quantities of some of our plants, but we will be happy to recommend alternatives.​​
