St. Anthony Park Garden Club perennial sale is June 1
The morning of Saturday, June 1, is all about perennial flowers and the return of the St. Anthony Park Garden Club’s plant sale in the parking lot of Park Service, 2277 Como Ave., from 9:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., during the St. Anthony Park Arts Festival.
Research shows that planting perennial flowers in front yards and boulevards not only creates a more pleasant environment, but increases the likelihood that people will want to walk and bike in a neighborhood—and those eyes on the street are a good crime deterrent.
There are a number of native perennials and a few well-behaved non-natives that are suitable to grow in the area, and many of those will be for sale on June 1. The plant sale is one of many activities of the St. Anthony Park Garden Club, which meets the first Tuesday of the month at 6:30 p.m. at St. Matthew’s Episcopal Church, 2136 Carter Ave. You can find out more about upcoming talks and club activities at sapcc.org/GardenClub.—Kay Qualley, St. Anthony Park Garden Club
