Duck River Garden Club’s Plant Sale Continues Today in Old Lyme

Geraniums and more will be on sale at the Duck River Garden Club’s Annual Plant Sale, which is being held May 7-8, with COVID-19 restrictions in place.

OLD LYME — The Duck River Garden Club will hold its traditional Plant Sale Friday, May 7, from 12 to 7 p.m. and Saturday, May 8, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at 19 Halls Rd. in the parking lot in front of The Hideaway.

In light of COVID-19 restrictions, the sale will be a little different this year. It cannot be the  feeling and touching of foliage of years gone by, but there will still be a good selection of quality plants. This year, customers will be doing more pointing than touching!
The in-person sale will include a collection of annuals, herbs, vegetables, geraniums, hanging pots, perennials, including a selection of native perennials, plus information from Pollinate Old Lyme! on hand, and members’ plants.
In terms of pre-orders, there is an April 30 deadline for new plant combos and ever-popular geraniums. Check out the combos on the order form – four different pre-packed sets of annuals – Sun Combo/Pollinator Powerhouse, another Sun Combo of bold flower colors, and two Shade Combos. There are also two vegetable combos – Lettuce & Tomatoes and the Classic Vegetable Combo, an assortment of squashes, eggplant and pepper.; plus a Herb Combo.
People can order these combos and geraniums for curb-side pick-up or DRGC members will  deliver these to Old Lyme residents.
The order form is available at this link:
The form should be downloaded, printed, completed and mailed with a check to DRGC, PO Box 4116, Old Lyme, CT 06371.

In-person shopping options will include hanging baskets (great Mother’s Day gifts), a special selection of native pollinator-friendly perennials, plus other popular perennials and members plants.

Native pollinator perennials and member’s plants will be available first come-first served during sales hours only (no trying to sneak in early this year!)
Due to COVID safety protocols, plants and payment areas will be spaced out and Ledge Light Health District, Town of Old Lyme at State of CT health/safety requirements will be followed.
There will be no sales of home-made bakery treats or goods from the gardener’s shed this year.
The DRGC members are looking forward to seeing community members again.
