This year’s Highlands Mountain Garden Club’s Annual Plant Sale. set for Saturday, May 29, promises to be an exceptionally joyous occasion.
It marks another milestone in a return to normalcy as our Covid numbers continue to decline, allowing us to once again hold events that unite our community.
This once-a-year opportunity allows everyone the chance to purchase native plants grown by some of the most accomplished gardeners on the Plateau.
This year the focus is on plants that attract pollinators, thereby ensuring that our gardens provide Mother Nature with a helping hand by maintaining a healthy habitat for our pollinators who depend on flowering plants.
Of course, there will be other plants available as well, including the always popular hosta in its many varieties, cinnamon ferns and other surprise offerings.
This year the club will honor Wiley Sloan, a treasured supporter who passed away in 2020. Affectionately known among club members as “The Hosta Man,” Wiley and his wife Sarah were ardent supporters of the Garden Club and Wiley could often be seen dispensing gardening wisdom while wearing his whimsical hosta hat.
The sale is held on Saturday, May 29, from 9:00 A.M. until noon at the Town of Highlands Ball Field at the corner of Highway 64 and Hickory Street.
Be prepared to come early, as the sale is extremely popular and long lines quickly form. Cash or check only, please.
