DetailsFamily Garden Club Scholarship Garden Plant Sale Our upcoming scholarship plant sale will be held on Saturday, May 11 at Paul’s garden located at 1852 Whispering Pines Circle in Englewood. The sale hours are from 8:30 am to 1:00 pm. This street is located off Englewood Road (highway 776) just next to the Lemon Bay Plaza (with the Big Lots store) and across from Englewood Isles. Signs will be on the road indicating where to turn. Our master gardener, Jim Chandler, says that club has selected the aloe vera to be the featured plant at this sale. It has been reported that the aloe vera is an extremely versatile plant, used in a number of ways. Some of the benefits are that it contains a huge number of vitamins, such as A, C, E, and B12. It is also rich in choline and folic acid and many minerals such as calcium, iron, potassium, copper and others, all coming from the natural aloe vera. The benefits of its use on the skin are untold. It calms the sensation from burns, both from hot items as well as sunburn. Many people call it the "burn plant." You can purchase aloe vera in many different forms (e.g., gel, capsules, shampoo, juice, moisturizers, etc.). But obviously the least expensive way is to use the gel that is found in the plant you grow in your own back yard. In addition to the aloe vera, other plants you may find at the sale are some Brazilian Red Cloak, Zonal (perennial) Geraniums, Palms, Bromeliads, Glory Bower, Turk's Cap, Fire Spike, both Red & Purple, and many others. Some of the varieties will be on a limited basis, so come early. All are grown on site, or by members in their own back yards, and not in green houses. The value of locally grown plants is that they do not experience the shock of moving from a greenhouse to the conditions of an outdoor environment. At the sale, if you have questions, please ask one of our knowledgeable members who will surely have the answer. All plants are locally grown with most started in the back yards of our members. Proceeds from the plant sale will go to the Lemon Bay High School Scholarship Fund. In May, 2018 we awarded two $2,000.00 scholarships at the awards ceremony. At the past eleven awards ceremonies the club has donated $23,000 by way of your purchases and generosity. We plan to hold several plant sales throughout the year. Please check our website for the future dates as they are planned.
