Plants needed for Buds ‘n Bloom sale

The Kent Harrison Foundation and the Harrison Festival Society are looking for plant donations for the 13th annual Buds ‘n’ Bloom Plant and Garden Sale on May 21.

A number of specialty plant growers and craft vendors have signed-up for the sale, but organizers are looking for plant donations from local gardeners. Perennials and small shrubs are preferred. Volunteers would be happy to collect the donations, and will dig them up for you. Also, a few booth spaces are still available for nurseries, crafters and others with garden related products.

Buds ‘n Bloom Plant and Garden Sale takes place on Saturday, May 21 in and around the Agassiz Agricultural Pavilion on the Agassiz Fairgrounds. The sale will go from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., and will feature a wide range of plants including specialty perennials, trees and shrubs and some vegetable starts. Crafts range from body care and herbal products to jewelry and garden ornaments. Garden services and info will also be featured. Admission to the sale is free. A raffle, silent auction and concession will be available.

For more information or to donate, call the Harrison Festival Society at 604-796-3664.
