Green Scene 38th Annual Plant Sale

Orange Day-lily Donations at the 2014 Plant Sale

Last year was a great success again we had record numbers of plant donations and our dig teams were busy digging for 3 weeks prior to sale. Green Scene would like to Thank all of you who donate and have donated plants to our sale every year.  For the past 38 years our dig teams have dug and divided all kinds of perennials.  In the past few years we found it necessary to put many last minute request for dig teams on a waiting list and for that reason we have made a decision in 2013 that the dig teams will not be able to include the digging, dividing and picking up of orange day-lilies.  Orange Day-lilies consume alot of time from the dig team volunteers, this year as in the past couple of years we have had to compost quite a large number as we weren't even able to give the remaining plants away free.  We will still accept orange day-lilies as a donations at the building the week of the sale along with the donations of all other plants.  We will still continue to dig, divide and pick up all other perennials as time allows during the week of set up for the sale.  Thank you again for your endless support and your wonderful donations.

Saturday, May 9, 2015 9:00 a.m. to noon
