Perennial Plant Sale at the Franklin Farmer’s Market

The Franklin Garden Club will hold a perennial plant sale at the Franklin Farmer’s Market on Friday, September 23. Proceeds from the sale will benefit the club’s scholarship fund. The plants will be from the gardens of members as well as the Town Common garden, which is maintained by the club. 

The Farmer’s Market is held from 12:00 – 6:00 p.m. at the Franklin Town Common.

“Fall is an excellent time of the year to plant perennials,” noted club co-president Susan Childers. “There will be a variety of healthy perennials to choose from and the average cost will be $3.00 per plant, a significant savings over those sold in the stores.”

Each year, the club conducts a variety of fund raising activities to support a scholarship that is awarded to a graduating senior who will be majoring in environmental or horticultural-related studies. The club also purchases pine tree seedlings which are distributed in elementary schools to celebrate Arbor Day.
