DetailsFamily Garden Club Scholarship Garden Plant Sale Our first 2019 scholarship plant sale will be held on Saturday, March 16 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, took inventory recently and reports that we have a wide selection of easy to grow plants, suitable for this area, and ready for purchase and planting. He says that in many parts of the world, Spring is yet to come, but most of you know the time to refresh your garden in SW Florida is mid-February through mid-March. If you are looking for some unique and interesting plants, you don't want to miss this sale. Jim mentions some of the plants you may select from. There are our many perennials including Brazilian Red Cloak, with those huge burgundy colored spike shaped flowers, Turk's Cap which blooms year-round, fake Oyster plants, many varieties of Clerodendrum (Who came up with this name?). We also have a few rooted cuttings of the Starburst variety Clerodendrum, which aptly describes the shape of the blossoms. Other plants that will be available are Wax Myrtle, various hedge type plants, variegated Dracaena Marginata, colorful Ti (cordyline), Song of India, zonal Geraniums and even some dish gardens for that kitchen window. Succulents and cacti will abound including Melted Wax. A few seedlings that will probably be ready for sale are Dwarf Blue Kale, Zinnia, Alyssum, and Milk Weed. Most plants are propagated and grown in members’ back yards. 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. Some of the varieties will be on a limited basis, so come early. 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. All proceeds from the 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. This plant sale is the first one planned in 2019. We plan to hold several throughout the year. Please check our website for the future dates as they are planned.
