This is the 6th annual "Blooms for Books" Library Plant Sale - a dedicated crew of volunteers have grown over 2,000 perennials, shrubs and trees for this year’s sale. The Pumpkin Ridge Gardens in North Plains is bringing an even larger selection of their beautiful, organically grown annual, perennial and vegetable starts, including several grown especially for the library. Look for edible flowers as a special category this year, and veggie starts especially suited to our cooler summers. The library receives 30% of the purchase price of these plants.
