Less than a week to go until our Plant Sale!

As usual, we’ve had many generous and interesting donations of plants from members and friends, so again there’s a chance to buy interesting plants grown locally by interested gardeners. As well as some of the more common plants, you’ll be able to find some special herbaceous and alpine plants, native plants, herbs, tomatoes and chilis for the greenhouse, trees, unusual vegetables, and more.

At the sale, we won’t put everything out at once, more plants will be put out on the stalls during the sale, so we will still have a good selection if you don’t arrive at the start.

As we did last year, we’re indicating prices by coloured lollipop sticks in the plant pots. This helps to keep things simple and speed up the payment process. There will be plenty of notices indicating the prices represented by each colour- if you want to check them in advance, see the picture below.

We can accept card and phone payments as well as cash at the sale.

We will have a supply of boxes and bags, but it will be really helpful if you can bring your own to take plants away.

If you’re coming by car, please park in the public car park off the main street in Rosemarkie in order to leave the Hall parking available for those with limited mobility and for deliveries and collection. Note that the Hall toilets will not be available, but the public toilets close by in the main street are open.

And finally, we’re always looking for extra volunteers to assist in running the Sale – if you feel you can help, please get in touch!
