The Woods Hole Public Library will be holding its annual Spring Plant Sale this year on Saturday, May 11, from 9am to 12pm. The majority of the plants at the sale come from community gardens, meaning shoppers are able to find hardy and healthy additions for their gardens that are proven to flourish in our Cape Cod climate. In order to have all these wonderful plants on hand, however, the Library relies on donations from our community. Now is the time to start planning your digging! As gardens wake up and the sun calls gardeners out to the yard, it is a perfect time to look around and determine which overzealous perennials could benefit from dividing. Spending the time to divide vigorous perennials is beneficial to the plants, giving them more room to grow and thrive. By donating extra perennials to the Woods Hole Library, gardeners can also benefit their community, allowing the Library to likewise grow and thrive!

Donations may be brought to the Library during the week before the sale. Pots and soil, as well as labels, are available at the Library in the courtyard for people to use in potting up their plants. All perennials, shrubs, small trees, house plants, and seedlings, as well as tubers, corms, and bulbs are welcome. For questions, please get in touch with the WHPL Plant Sale Committee by emailing whpl.plantsale@gmail.com or calling the Woods Hole Public Library at (508) 548-8961.
