Lake Grove Garden Club members have been working diligently for months in preparation for its 94th-annual plant sale to take place April 27 from 8 a.m. to noon at Our Lady of the Lake Catholic Church, 650 A Ave., in Lake Oswego. For sale will be plants, shrubs, trees, native and unusual plants.
The plants have been locally grown by members, so they are acclimated to the soil and climate, and will be tagged and most will have pictures of the plants in full bloom. Many of the plants will attract butterflies and bees, too.
"Many of our members have sustainable, native and organic gardens," said Jane Hetzler, publicity chair for the plant sale. "Several of our members are Oregon State University certified Master Gardeners so you can get expert advice about what you purchase. Our club has members from all over the U.S. and each has brought information and knowledge from their past gardening experiences and clubs."
Proceeds from the sale support the garden club's projects including maintaining the pollinator garden at Luscher Farm, the flower beds at the Lake Oswego Adult Community Center and the heirloom rose garden at Oswego Heritage House and Museum.
The club recently planted a rose bush in the garden in memory of garden club member Ann Powers.
Hetzler encourages all to come early to the sale for the best selection. Payment is preferred in cash or checks.
