BAR HARBOR — Area gardeners will have a chance to pick up a wide selection of native and ornamental plants at the annual Wild Gardens of Acadia’s benefit plant sale set for Saturday, June 15, from 9 a.m. until noon.
The sale, which features plants grown in area greenhouses and split from beds in area gardens, is held every year in mid-June, at St. Saviour’s Episcopal Church on Mount Desert Street. Offerings include native plants, vegetable seedlings, herbs, annuals, and perennials. Plants are donated to the sale by local nurseries, numerous private estates, and the Wild Gardens volunteers’ personal gardens.
“This annual benefit event has been held each year since 1961—it’s a venerable spring tradition and a great opportunity to fill your garden and landscape with a fabulous variety of plants,” a Wild Gardens spokesperson said.
The sale is held rain or shine. All proceeds help support the Wild Gardens of Acadia, a volunteer committee of Friends of Acadia.
