BETHEL — The 28th Annual Bethel Library Plant sale is Saturday, June 17, from 9 to 11 a.m. on the library lawn at 6 Broad Street in Bethel. The sale is one of the best places to get hardy perennials that have thrived in local gardens. All the plants are donated by local gardeners in the weeks just prior to the sale. This year the sale is later in the spring than usual, meaning that the plants will be larger.

Plants available this year include (but are not limited to) lilies, irises, lilacs, ground covers (vincas, hostas, and myrtle), and herbs. Most of the plants are perennials, but other plants, such as vegetable seedlings and house plants, are also included.

Volunteers mark the plants with their name, under which conditions they will thrive, and who donated the plant.

The sale is a unique chance to meet and share ideas with other gardeners. Library volunteers will also be offering used books for sale and raffle tickets for a homemade doll house and queen size quilt.

Donations of plants are accepted until the night before the sale. If you need pots or markers or need your plants picked up, call the library at 207-824-2520 or call or text Susan Parker at 207-890-7243.
