Des Fleurs annual spring sale set for May 5


The Des Fleurs Garden Club’s annual spring plant sale will begin at 8 a.m. Thursday, May 5 at the Oxford Community Arts Center, 10 South College Ave. 

Members of the club scour their gardens each spring for specimens they can bring to the sale. The club also makes planters, baskets, and other creations that are on display and for sale in the center’s north parlor and ballroom.

The event’s quick sale begins at 8 a.m. and is open to the public on a walk-in basis. Items in this sale include perennials such as daisies, hostas, and herbs, as well as gardening books and some less common annuals, according to the club.

Reservations are taken for a live auction that begins at 1o:30 a.m. for items including miniature gardens, special plants, and combinations of plants. The auction is followed by a free luncheon.
