Plant Sale | Morrison

Spring has sprung

Sat., May 21, 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
Morrison Garden Club will once again be hosting its annual plant sale this year. The sale is in the Community Room at Odell Library located at 307 South Madison Street. 

As the saying goes, "The early bird gets the worm." Come at 9 a.m. for the best selection. There will also be Master Gardeners on hand to give advice on the care and how and where to plant your purchases.

Although many of the plants come from our own gardens, we still appreciate and need donations. Donations of plants and anything gardening related will be accepted and needed prior to the sale. 

For a good cause

All proceeds will be put back into the community for future projects.
