The Belfast Garden Club will hold its annual plant sale Saturday, May 19, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Belfast Boathouse. This popular event features a wide assortment of Maine-grown annuals, perennials, herbs and vegetables.

As always, the sale will offer bountiful donations from generous local nurseries that provide a variety of annuals, perennials and shrubs.

The club also relies on area gardeners for contributions of perennials. Members will be happy to come and dig plants from local gardens, and will provide replacement soil. The club also welcomes garden tools, books and other items for its popular Gardener-to-Gardener area.

Donations help keep Belfast beautiful, as the nonprofit club uses proceeds to maintain 12 public gardens and award two annual scholarships to Waldo County students studying earth-friendly fields, among its many endeavors.

To donate, give sale coordinator Bonnie Irwin a call at 703-9057 or email her at Learn more about the club at and visit the club on Facebook.
