Area residents seeking to add new life and color to their gardens and yards this fall are encouraged to attend the Landscape and Turfgrass Crew Club’s annual Fall Plant Sale on Wednesday, Sept. 26, at Owens Community College in Perrysburg Township.
The plant sale will occur 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. next to the greenhouse, which is near the entrance to the Owens Math/Science Center on on Oregon Road. The sale will feature a wide selection of shrubs, perennials, ornamental grasses, and rare and unusual trees, among other items.
Chris Foley, Owens associate professor of Science and Landscape and Turfgrass Crew Club advisor, said, “Fall is a very good time to plant trees and shrubs as the ground is still warm from the summer months and the soil is very moist.”
All proceeds from the plant sale will help in supporting the organization’s participation in the PLANET (Professional Landcare Network) Student Career Days, which is a national horticultural and landscape competition involving colleges and universities across the country.
Shrubs on hand will include the Purple Beauty Berry, Blue False Spirea, Dwarf Oakleaf Hydrangea, Fine Wine Weigela, and a wide assortment of many others. Additionally, over 20 different varieties of trees and evergreens will be available at the fall plant sale such as the Japanese Stripped-bark Maple, the Kwanzan Cherry and the Colorado Spruce.
The Landscape and Turfgrass Crew Club will also sell an array of perennials, including select hostas and ornamental grasses. A complete listing of the available plants with their prices is available online or by calling 567-661-7623 or 1-800-GO-OWENS, Ext. 7623.
