Gardeners preparing for plant sale

-A +A
The Auburn Garden Club’s annual plant sale will be from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, April 28, in the parking lot at Bethlehem Lutheran Church on High Street, next to the entrance to the Gold Country Fairgrounds. There will be perennials, trees, bedding plants, dogwoods, named-variety daylilies, vegetables, garden crafts and a bake sale. Proceeds from the plant sale benefit the grants program for non-profits involved in horticultural and garden related projects. “The plant material is locally propagated by members and is right at home in the foothills including some organic and deer resistant plants,” club spokeswoman Barbara Tellman said in an e-mail. “In this present economy and with the closing of many local independent nurseries specializing in native and perennial plants, the Auburn Garden Club plant sale offers buyers unusual finds at very reasonable prices.” For more information on the sale, visit
