  • Saturday, July 14, 2018, Scholarship Garden Plant Sale

    Our next 2018 scholarship plant sale will be on Saturday, July 14 at Paul’s garden at 1852 Whispering Pines Circle in Englewood. The sale hours are from 8:30am to 1:00pm. This street is located off of 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. Some examples of plants that the Family Garden Club of Englewood will offer are plants such as Brazilian Red Cloak, Turk’s Cap, Glory Bower, both Red and Purple Fire Spike, Kings Mantle and Purple Trumpet Flower. Plants are priced by pot size with many starting at $3 up to $9 with some specimens priced appropriately. More details as to the types of plants we will have will be available soon.

    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. This May we awarded two $2,000.00 scholarships at the awards ceremony. The recipients of the two scholarships were Nicholas Hull and Valerie Pappalardo. At the past eleven awards ceremonies the club has donated $23,000 by way of your purchases and generosity. We plan to have three additional plant sales through the remainder of the year. Please check our website for the future dates.
