The Summerland Ornamental Gardens will be holding its annual Fall Plant Sale but with a different twist due to COVID-19 restrictions.
The heritage gardens in Summerland have been closed to the public since pandemic restrictions took effect in mid-March, but in July the grounds were opened to the Friends of the Gardens Society members so they could resume maintenance and care for the neglected site.
Two full time paid gardeners and many volunteers have been working hard to restore and groom the gardens but with no public donations on site, fundraising is of the utmost importance.
Organizers hope their fall plant sale will help boost dwindling finances.
This year, the plant sale will be done online with a designated plant pickup location.
A wide range of perennials, vines, trees, shrubs and house plants will be on offer. The complete plant list will be posted on the Summerland Ornamental Gardens website at www.summerlandgardens.org starting Sept, 9.
Orders can be placed by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org until Sept. 19. Payment options include e-transfer, PayPal, cheque or cash.
