A spring tradition that was sadly missed in 2020 will be back this year! Marti Warren, Karen Woodbury and Elise Lutz, along with many dedicated members of The Amherst Garden Club, have been busy for months working out the details for the 2021 Amherst Plant Sale to be held online only. Our club members will dig, pot and label to sell our usual high quality, locally grown perennials. You will be able to purchase these plants through our new online shop starting at 8:30 AM on April 28. Shop early for best selection! The sale will close on May 1 at 12:00 noon.
Payment will be made online during our sale hours. Plan to pick up your order curbside on Saturday, May 8 at Wilkins School. (You will be notified of your pick-up time prior to May 8.) Our masked plant sale helpers will load your car with your purchases — contact-free, no need to get out of your car.
In addition to our featured locally grown perennials, our sale will include an auction selection of baskets creatively filled by our members with items perfect for Mother’s Day, or other gift giving occasions. Some themes for the baskets include gardening equipment, bees, Swedish baking, Bonsai, and Birds. Hanging Baskets of annual flowers will be available for purchase, grown by Trombly Gardens of Milford. The shop will also offer a curated selection of gently used gardening equipment and ornaments and some lovely, hearty House Plants!
The link to shop will be posted the day before it opens, April 27 . . . if all goes well!! We have worked hard to make this event run as smoothly as possible and thank you for your support.

Proceeds from the Plant Sale go back to the community. The money we raise pays for town beautification projects, educational programs that are free and open to the public, and worthy causes, such as scholarships for local high school students.
We sell locally grown plants — perennials, trees, shrubs, and grasses — all lovingly dug and potted by members of the garden club. Plant Sale 2019 Inventory
Save Your Empty Pots! If you have empty pots (6-inch or larger), we would love to have them for our next plant sale. You can bring empty pots to the fire station on Stearns Road. Leave them behind the garden house on the right, where you will see other pots.
