Memorial Day Weekend Plant Sales!

Filed under: calendar,cedar,gardening,Leelanau,leland,preservation,spring — Andrew McFarlane @ 10:00 am

Hey! There's also the annual Cedar Plant Sale on Saturday, May 23 from 9 am-4 pm next to the river in Cedar. This is a major fundraiser for the Cedar Area Community Foundation and their 256 dates of free activities throughout the year. Healthy perennials and wildflowers, inspected, are ready for planting in your garden. Prices start at $2!

Last fall and this spring the Leelanau Conservancy Wildflower Rescue Committee dug up, potted and whisked native wildflowers out of the path of impending development. Now is your chance to purchase unusual natives like ferns, trout lilies and trillium, along with a huge selection of nursery perennials.

Sale begins Friday, May 22 and runs 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Friday and Saturday and Sunday noon to 4 p.m. All proceeds help maintain the Village Green.

In addition to being sold in this sale, many rescued plants have been donated to public gardens such as The Old Settlers Park in Glen Arbor, The Leland Children’s Center, The Old Art Building in Leland, Munson Hospice House in Traverse City, and The Leland Village Green. If you know of a site where wildflowers might be saved, or are planning to excavate your own property, call Rescue chairs Patty Shea: 256-9249 or Joanie Woods: 256-7154.

    Thinking of renaming this blog to "The Leelanau Blog as swiped from the Leland Report".
