The Peterborough Garden Club recently hosted its annual plant sale in downtown Peterborough. Visitors to the sale went home with plants that included hanging baskets, ground covers, hostas and perennials. Many of the plants came from members’ own yards.

Also available were heirloom tomatoes from member Carolyn Grummon, floral arrangements for Mother’s Day gifts by member Holly Breeden and pollinator plants by co-President Shannen Coffey.

The South Meadow School Garden Club also hosted a fundraising table where students planted marigolds for Mother’s Day gifts.
