The Point Association is pleased to announce that their annual community plant sale will be held on Saturday, May 28, 2016, 8am to noon, St. John’s Church parking lot, corner of Willow at Washington Streets.

Whether a veteran gardener or a blooming beginner, arrive early to get the best “pickings” from Astilbe to Zebra Grass, and everything in between! You will find a wide selection of home grown perennials, hot house annuals, herbs, and local cuttings will be available for sale. Shop the whimsical element table, thumb through gardening books for inspiration. Local vendors will have their wares for sale. Be sure to savor the fresh baked goods at the coffee table.

Begun as a neighborly social gathering and plant swap in 1965, called the “Apple Blossom Coffee Hour and Plant Sale,” by an association’s founder, Mrs. Eccles, this much awaited community event is a festive kick­off to the summer gardening season.

Come enjoy an old­fashioned botanical gathering…always a wonderful way to brush off the winter doldrums and catch up with neighbors…and, take home a creative addition for your porch, border, or garden from this not­to­be­missed seaside plant sale.
