Richmond Heights Garden Club Plant Sale This Saturday!

Member grown and Heimos Nursery plants, raffle, and lots of friendly plant growing advice!

In February, 1952, the Richmond Heights Garden Club (R.H.G.C.)  incorporated as a part of the Gardeners of America. At that time, there was a push for gardening self-sufficiency and home grown vegetables. Approximately ten clubs made up the Ozark Region of the Gardeners of America, including Kirkwood, Webster Groves, Florissant, Ritenour, St Charles, and St Louis City.

This year the R.H.G.C. celebrated its 60th birthday in February. The Club is still going strong and has about fifty members from the metro-region. This Saturday, April 28, 9:00a.m.-3:00p.m., at the on Big Bend, the club will hold its annual plant sale. There will be member grown stock like hostas and ferns, Heimos Nursery stock for those hard-to-get annuals, a raffle basket, and lots of growing advice from club gardeners.

Donna McDonald, treasurer, says, "Come early for selection, come late for cheapest prices".

R.H.G.C. has monthly meetings on the second Tuesday of the month at at 6:30p.m. Guest speakers present gardening information. Summer "eating meetings" are held at members' homes and gardens so you can see what others are growing. There will be a membership table at the plant sale if you care to join this not-for-profit club and learn more about gardening!
