Saturday, June 3, 9:00 a.m. – 12:00 p.m. Boothbay Harbor Fire Department
Mark your calendars for June 3, when the stalwart gardeners of the Boothbay Harbor Memorial Library will offer a plant sale at Boothbay Harbor Fire Department, 11 Howard Street, Boothbay Harbor. This year’s sale will feature all the perennial favorites, like day lilies, hostas, black-eyed Susans, tomato seedlings and herbs. As always, there will also be those special hard-to-find plants from local master gardeners.
This year’s sale will emphasize native plants. While people drool over those showy cultivars and plants from away, native plants are the workhorses that deliver. They offer essential habitat for the butterflies, pollinators, and birds we love. And they aren’t as needy as the PFAs. Native plants need less water, less tending and can better withstand our climate’s sometimes extreme weather.
