Proud Market Plant Sale
This Saturday, May 25
Rain or Shine
8 am until the plants run out!
This sale is the best - a great opportunity to buy all manner of plants, many of them unusual or hard to find, at really great prices. We have several regular vendors–garden clubs and small independent plant specialists– and you can count on some real “finds”. Lots of perennials, shrubs and trees, as well as annuals and vegetables. Come early because plants sell out fast.
Donate Your Extra Plants to Benefit RCGC. Sales benefil our education program. We need your perennial divisions, extra annuals, etc. Leave them behind the Castle any time this week up through Friday.
2013 RCGC Summer Garden Tour
To the Beach and Beyond:
Gardens of Sodus Point
Saturday, July 13, 2013
10am - 4pm
This year we’re headed east to explore gardens near Sodus Point. Join us as we explore nine special gardens – a historic stone lake house with sweeping beds of perennials, shrubs and ornamental grasses; an artist’s ‘Margaritaville’-themed beachfront garden; a 40-acre property on a road-less-traveled, complete with a labyrinth that takes the phrase ‘outdoor living’ to new heights; a perfect view of the lake from the porch of a cottage appropriately surrounded by cottage gardens exploding with summer blossoms…and more. For more information visit our Garden Tour webpage.
Before you grab your trowel and head out into the garden, why not take a moment to invest in yourself as a gardener and support gardening in Rochester by making a tax deductible contribution to the RCGC Spring Fund drive. Your donation plays a vital role in helping us to provide resources such as our horticultural library, classes and events to the community!
