GardenMart 2021

The Silver Spring Garden Club's annual plant sale IS back at Brookside Gardens!

The sale starts on Saturday, May 8 at 9:00am and goes until 1:00pm.
 (Note that many things sell out - so come early for best selection!)

For shopping: wear a mask and wear gloves. Please try to touch only what you are buying, bring a checkbook* and/or exact change, and have a box or tray to transport your purchases.

There will be NO holds, pre-orders, etc.

It is rain or shine.

The sale is at Brookside Garden's Visitor Center on the outside terrace.

All plants are locally grown and all proceeds go to the Silver Spring Garden Club (https://www.silverspringgardenclub.com/) and a portion will be donated to Brookside Gardens.


*Pre-make your check out to the "Silver Spring Garden Club" then sign and date it -- just leave the amounts blank to fill in at the check out table.

Just added: Dahlias! The National Capital Dahlia Society is joining our GardenMart sale on Saturday again. They expect to have LOTS of dahlia tubers to sell as this is their only in-person sale this year.


GardenMart RAFFLE: 


We are also selling Raffle Tickets - it is best to print out the sheet (posted here) and pre-fill these in (address stickers work great for this), to speed up the process.
