U City in Bloom holds its Spring Plant Sale at the Heman Park Community Center (975 Pennsylvania) every year on the last weekend in April. As soon as the weather begins to warm in March, UCB volunteers get busy digging up, dividing, and potting perennial plants from UCB beds and from many other University City donors’ gardens. These hardy perennials have flourished in our challenging climate and will thrive in your garden as well. In addition to the thousands of perennial plants prepared by the volunteers, a variety of flowering annuals, vegetables, and herbs will be offered for sale.

The Preview Party is on Friday evening, April 28, from 5 PM – 7:30 PM. Tickets are $20. Guests can choose and purchase plants while enjoying drinks, a signature cocktail, and light refreshments. The public sale begins on Saturday, April 29, from 9 AM – 1 PM; and continues on Sunday, April 30, from 11 AM – 1 PM.

Brittany Woods Middle Schoolers, guided by teacher Katherine Avant, will again have their clever handmade pots for sale. The students also “plant sit” customers’ selections so they can pick out additional items, and help carry purchases out to cars. U City in Bloom is grateful for their help, and for all the other volunteers who make this fund- raiser a success.

Watch for an eBlast calling for Plants and People to Help or listing some of the extensive annuals and perennials that will be available for sale.
