Digging and potting at Karen’s

Prior to selling her house, our club president offered divisions of nearly all the plants in her lovely garden to the Plant Sale. Member volunteers and the Plant Sale Committee arrived at her garden on a sunny day in early April to prepare hundreds of plants. While new leaves barely showed above the soil, we dug and divided hostas and peonies, thinned ferns and hellebores, and much more. About half were replanted in her garden and the rest were potted and labelled for sale. A month later, her garden was lush and healthy, as if we had taken nothing, and the potted divisions sold out quickly at the Plant Sale.
