YARMOUTH, N.S. —

The Yarmouth Garden Club’s annual plant sale will be held Tuesday, May 21, at the NSCC Burridge Campus gym, 5:30 - 7:30 pm.

Members will bring items between 2:30 - 5 p.m.

Organizers say the sale is a major fund raiser for the club and has been very successful in the past.

Plants are from member’s gardens and include perennials that needed to be divided, shrub prunings rooted in pots, ivy, berrybush and houseplants.

There are several business vendors this year: Phillip Lee will be selling his handmade rope baskets, Alice d’Entremont of Ouest-ville Perennials in Pubnico will talk about and sell succulents as well as flower pots and Storm Cast (seaweed compost product).
