Welcome spring with the Nature Center's annual plant sale
May flowers . . . and plants and herbs and vegetables . . . will color the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes parking lot during its 31st annual plant sale on Saturday, May 11, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m.
The sale features a wide variety of hard-to-find native plants, perennials and annuals selected by a local team of experienced horticulturalists. Annuals can be purchased in flats, individually, or in convenient preplanted hanging baskets. There will also be a wide selection of vegetable plants ready for a kitchen garden, and plant assortments one can combine to create a beautiful container arrangement.
Experts will be available during the sale to help customers make their selections. The day also includes a free children’s craft activity—make something for Mother's Day! Vendors and refreshments will be available to help make it a fun family day.
All proceeds benefit the Nature Center and its many programs. The Nature Center at Shaker Lakes (216-321-5935, www.shakerlakes.org) is located at 2600 South Park Blvd.
Wendy Donkin is an avid gardener in Cleveland Heights and the marketing manager at the Nature Center at Shaker Lakes.
