Wilmington Garden Club hosted its annual plant sale on the grounds and in the carriage house of the Clinton County Historical Museum on May 6. It was a cool, beautiful Saturday welcomed by gardeners and non-gardeners alike after several rainy days. Over a thousand plants were available for purchase.
The annual $2 plant sale is our major fundraiser allowing us to pay for the things we do in our community. Our members volunteer many hours a year, particularly between May and November.
We maintain the flower beds in Point Park originally begun by Wilmington Garden Club in 1978 and the gazebo which the Wilmington Garden Club built and donated to the city in 1983. We maintain two flower beds at the entrance to Sugar Grove Cemetery and the herb garden on the grounds of the Clinton County Historical Museum.
Wilmington Garden Club hosts a flower show in June for all plant and flower gardeners to show and tell! This summer’s flower show is open to anyone; it will be held at the Clinton County Historical Museum carriage house on Wednesday, June 28.
In addition to the above, the Wilmington Garden Club honors gardens of both business and private homes, donates a tree for Arbor Day, and makes small gifts for Community Care Hospice to give to those they care for.
We thank all our customers for your support.
