FULTON, Ill. — Finally looking forward to spring weather, we are all somewhat anxious to get outside into the yard to do some gardening. As you anticipate what changes and improvement you wish to make, consider coming to the annual Fulton Plant Sale on May 12.
There is always a nice selection of plants to choose from for your seasonal projects. Primarily, perennials with some annuals will be available.
This sale operates solely on donated specimens from area gardens. If you have plants you no longer want or need to split, dig them up and bring them to the Fulton Fire Station, located near the intersection of Illinois 136 and 84, from 1 to 7 p.m. May 11.
Gardeners will be there to re-package your donations for the sale on the following day. The actual sale will be from 8 a.m. to noon May 12. Most plants are priced at $2 and up. Come early for the best selection.
Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions concerning planting tips and recommended plant care. The Fulton Plant Sale is sponsored by the Friends of the Windmill, with proceeds to benefit the beautification of the Windmill Area.
If you have questions about digging and splitting plants, contact Jude at (563) 249-6115.
