This Saturday is the biggest day of the year for garden club plants sales which raise tens of thousands of dollars for local civic projects. Since many of the plants are dug from members' yards you never know what you might find, or what the prices may be. These sales are kind of like plant yard sales. You can find some choice rarities or bargains if you are lucky - and if you come early. Here's some of the day's sales:
