2015-03-20 Plant sale 17 May 2015

The annual TGAA plant sale will take place at the St Margaret’s Institute on Sunday 17th May 2015 between 10.00 and 1.30. You will be able to bring plant, and other, donations to the institute from 4.00 on Saturday 16th May. Last year’s plant sale raised just over £1,000 making it one of our main sources of income. Please don’t forget the plant sale when splitting garden perennials or house plants, sowing vegetable seeds or propagating cuttings.
