Got a green thumb?

Aspire to have one?

This Saturday (May 13) will be a bonanza for Peninsula residents looking for plants, with the South Surrey Garden Club holding its annual plant sale, as well as two other sales scheduled for the same day.

The South Surrey Garden Club’s annual plant sale is the largest in South Surrey, with more than 2,000 plants for sale, all lovingly cared for by the plant sale’s propagation team. It takes place from 9 a.m. to noon at St. Mark’s Anglican Church, 12953 20 Ave.

Sun-loving perennials, shade plants, unique trees, hanging baskets, and unusual specimen plants will be featured at the sale.

Gardeners will also find gently used tools, soil amendments, and gardening gloves for sale.

The Mother’s Day table – always a highlight with the kids – will have special plants and pots perfect for mom.

For those needing advice, master gardeners will be on hand and there will also be a master tool sharpener on site, to take care of any tools that may have been neglected over the winter.

A major fundraiser for the club supporting the monthly speaker series (free to members; $5 for the public), garden tours, workshops, and a number of other activities, new members can join the South Surrey Garden Club at the plant sale for just $10 and enjoy all of the club activities this spring and summer.
