2019 Plant Auction

Perennials & houseplants at bargain prices


Wednesday, Sept 25th

6:30 Preview / 7:00 Auction

Burlington Human Services Building, Murray-Kelley Room,

61 Center St, Burlington, MA

In years past, the plant auction was a favorite activity so the Program Commitee decided to bring it back this year. And because Fall is the perfect time to divide and transplant what better time to do so than September. All members are asked donate perennials or house plants for the event. The more intersting and healthy the plants the more fun the auction will be and the more money we can raise tof the club.
