Pine River Garden Club Annual Plant Sale


   The Pine River Garden Club will host its Annual Plant Sale in conjunction with the Pine River Farmers Market on Friday, May 24, 2:30-5:30pm at the Pine River Depot on Hwy 371 just south of the traffic light on the West side. 

   This annual sale features perennial plants from area gardeners’ gardens so you know the plants will do well in this growing zone.  Typically there are perennial flowers, rhubarb, some annuals such as tomatoes and a variety of annual flowers, dahlia tubers, canna bulbs, gladiola corms, hostas, day lilies, black raspberries, anise hyssop, Queen of the Prairie, Hops, Bergenia, Daisies, and more!  It’s a great way to learn about plants hardy to zone 3 in our area and a fun way to try something new for your own garden.  The gardeners present aid you with any questions you may have about location for planting whether in sun or shade, and the best type of soil for the plants.

   Proceeds from the sale go towards costs of maintaining area public gardens in Backus and in Pine River, along with monthly programs for club members featuring topics such as growing dahlias, raising monarchs for release, growing peonies, raising lilies, building soil, crafting a piece of garden art or a Fall item for display, and touring local gardens in the summer months.  The club typically meets March – October on the 3rd Tuesday of the month.  For more information on the Pine River Garden Club contact President Sherry Fitch at 218-821-4855.

   The farmers market runs every Friday, 2:30-5:30pm May 24 through the end of September and features many local growers and crafters with produce, plants, berries in season, crafts, canned goods, baked goods, honey, and more!  For more information about the farmers market contact Tanya Villano at 612-247-6118.
