(May 17-18 is our big sale, but we also will be open for sales during the whole growing season – see below. This is our philanthropic adventure as we share our love of gardening:)

Mostly PERENNIALS, SPECIAL DAYLILIES and IRISES, and a several BUSHES
Some have pictures of their blooms.

Great prices! All plants are priced with either colored sticks mostly from $4 - $10, Some of the special or larger plants will be priced a little higher.

We have been busy thinning, dividing, and digging many wonderful plants from our gardens and our friend's. These are plants that have grown so well in our gardens that we have enough to share.

Most of these plants are perennials (plants that come up every year.) Again, this year, we have some beautiful award winning and/or special daylilies with cultivar names and photo of their blooms. We also have some special irises. Many of these special plants were donated by our local societies.

This is our philanthropic adventure. Mostly all of our profits from the sales benefit local charities, gardening projects, and scholarships.

However, we will often be open for sales most Tuesday mornings from 9:30AM to 1:00PM at our scheduled time times to work and care for the wonderful plants.


Do you have plants that you are willing to part with?
We are always looking for more perennial plants for our annual plant sale to support charities and gardening projects. Maybe you are changing your landscape, thinning out your garden or just simply have too much of one kind, just let us know what you want done. You can either dig them up yourself (we can pot them if needed) or we will gather up a group of our members to dig, pot, and take them off your hands. We are willing to come and help you dig up plants throughout the spring, summer, and fall. Just let us know!

We will also recycle your unwanted garden art and related garden items. We will help the plants (and/or garden art/items) find new homes and you will be helping us give to the community and charities. As shared above, the money we earn at our annual plant sale helps support community projects and charities during the year.

So whether you are shopping and/or donating plants and/or unwanted garden items you are helping charities and your/our community. Thank you!

Portage Garden Club's opportunity to share our love of gardening while giving almost all of our profits to local charities, community gardening projects, and scholarships. Thank you!
