Long Hill Garden Club holds plant sale

The Long Hill Garden Club annual plant sale will take place on Saturday, May 16, at the Trumbull Library from 8:30 a.m.noon.

For sale will be hundreds of locally grown perennials, native plants, grasses, small shrubs and trees, heirloom tomato plants, Bee Happy products, and houseplants. Each plant will be tagged for identification and sorted by light requirements. Experts in gardening and landscaping will be available to answer questions. Many members of the club are Master Gardeners.

Proceeds from the plant sale will benefit the club’s philanthropic efforts. Each year, the Long Hill Garden Club gives a $1,000 scholarship and donates books to the Trumbull Library and elementary schools. The club provides passes to the Discovery Museum and the Beardsley Zoological Gardens which are available for check-out at the Trumbull Library.

In addition, there is an ongoing commitment to town projects. A native tree was planted for each first grade class at all six elementary schools. Nature and gardening classes are given by members for 3-year-old pre-school students. Members work with the Madison Middle School students’ Courtyard Club to renovate the courtyard’s landscape.

Plant sale chairperson is Linda Rumsey-Dolega.
