Spring Plant Sale 2017: Thank You!

Windy morning, sunny afternoon and Earth Day: it was Spring Plant Sale 2017! Thank you to everyone who donated items and worked so hard - you helped the Windsor Garden Club raise over $2,600! The proceeds fund WGC garden education and beautification projects, including improvements to the Town Green Community Garden, and scholarships for plant- and environment-minded local students! Be sure to stop by the Windsor Farmers' Market table over the next few Sundays to buy some giant pumpkin seeds. They’re from a whopper pumpkin entered in the town's 2016 Giant Pumpkin contest. There are plenty still available -- harvested and packaged by WGC.

If the rain put a damper on your early-April urge to get out and plant your spring garden, you’re not alone. But take heart: technically it’s still too early to plant your spring garden anyway. Frost season isn’t over in Windsor until mid-April. Local gardeners usually say April 15 – taxes due and frost season over on the same day. Thanks to a calendar quirk, tax day 2017 is April 18 – so maybe there are three extra days of frost watch this year too. Either way, there’s still plenty of time to plant for spring and summer veggies – or psych yourself into trying to plant a vegetable garden again if you haven’t had much luck before.

Birds n' Bees n' Plant Sale April 23

Don’t have the knack of planting seedlings? Mark your calendar for April 23 and come on over to the annual Windsor Garden Club Spring Plant Sale between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. on the Town Green. It’s part of Windsor’s annual Earth Day and Wellness Festival. You’ll find flower and vegetable starts, beautiful container gardens, garden décor, and even giant pumpkin seeds. (They’re from a whopper pumpkin entered in a 2016 Giant Pumpkin contest). This year’s Spring Plant Sale theme is “Birds n’ Bees,” and you’ll find plenty of flower starts good for creating bee- and butterfly-friendly habitats in your front and back yards. The plant sale is one of two annual fundraisers for the non-profit club
