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.
