Our 51st Annual Plant Sale was a Success!

This year the Plant Sale was held outdoors at 472 Woolverton Road by appointment, following COVID protocols. There was a wide variety of annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, herbs, vegetables, and even Native / Carolinian trees.  Our donations from wholesalers and retailers was substantially larger than last year's.

We had visitors from Hamilton Horticultural Society and Niagara-on-the-Lake Garden Club who provided wonderful feedback on our plant variety and knowledge about the plants. Three cheers for our amazing team of volunteers. 

A special THANK YOU to those that donated plants. Without you and the amazing support from our local nurseries, we would not have had the success we did. Again... thank you.

We did have some plants left over including grasses, hostas and day lilies. Some of these will be donated to the YMCA and Elm Street gardens. As for the rest, you are welcome to take a country drive to 472 Woolverton Rd and if you see some leftover plants you'd like, help yourself and make a donation to the Grimsby Garden Club Plant Sale. You will see a cash box with the left over plants.

This year’s plant sale revenue exceeded fundraising goals and set a new record high for money raised. This puts the garden club on good footing to continue supporting town beautification projects, our monthly speaker series and student scholarships.

A special thank you to our dig team Joe Fisher and Stephen Hargrave and to my co-chair Marilyn Cornwell.

April 15 2021
Grimsby Garden Club hosts Earth Day tree & shrub sale to support Grimsby’s natural heritage




 

Sale ends Sunday, April 18th 6:00pm

We're selling out so take action now!



Join the Grimsby residents who are bringing our natural heritage back to Grimsby with native trees and shrubs!

That’s why the Grimsby Garden Club and Ontariogreen, in partnership with the Town of Grimsby, is holding their First Annual Earth Day Carolinian Native Tree & Shrub Sale. 

 

The trees and shrubs for sale are native to our special Carolinian eco-zone. They are critical to our birds and their fledglings in the Spring and to our pollinators throughout the season. Bringing native trees to each home is a simple and critical step to keeping Grimsby’s natural heritage intact. Consider the vibrantly-coloured, spring-blooming Redbud, or the exotic-flavoured fruit of the Pawpaw.  

 

There will be more than a dozen species to choose from. A list of the trees and shrubs available, along with information about their features, size, soil requirements etc. is available here: http://www.ontariogreen.ca/tree-sale.html  

 

Payment for your tree and shrub order can be made securely online through PayPal, Debit or Credit Card.

 

The trees and shrubs sizes available are: 1 gal pot size for $20; 3 gal pot size for $30 and rare deciduous varieties for $40 in a 3 gal pot size.

 

All the trees and shrubs orders can be picked up at the Town of Grimsby’s Town Hall parking lot (back parking lot) at 160 Livingston Ave, Grimsby, on Thursday, April 22nd between 6:00 p.m. and 8:00 p.m. Alternate arrangements can be made by calling Liza Fuller at 289-680-6087.

 

The Grimsby Garden Club and Ontariogreen would like to thank the Town of Grimsby; Earthgen Tree Nursery (https://www.earthgen.ca) and Field 2 Home (https://field2home.com) for their support of the Carolinian Native Tree/Shrub sale.
