Once flowers arrive at the Park on Friday, volunteers sort and price them ready for the annual weekend sale

It may be difficult to tell from the cool weather that spring has arrived, but our perennial plants know it. Leaves are breaking out and flowers sprouting for weeks now.

The semi-official, no-frost date, May 10, has come and gone, meaning Chicago gardeners can now safely plant tender annuals. Mother Nature is right on queue for planting and Mothers Day celebrations.

This weekend, May 12-14, the Wicker Park Community Garden Club presents their annual Plant Sale and Fundraiser.

All plants for the sale are personally selected by knowledgeable garden club members from local, long-time grower Ted’s in Tinley Park. In addition to tender annuals, herbs and vegetables, the volunteers will be selling perennials, hanging baskets and maybe a few select plants from their own gardens. 

All funds raised are used to maintain the 10,000 square feet of ornamental public gardens in Wicker Park, which are designed and tended to by volunteers.

Rain or shine the sale will be open Saturday and Sunday May 13 and 14, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. in Wicker Park, 1425 N. Damen, on the west side of the Field House (or in the gym if it is raining). 

There will also be a Children’s Potting area on both Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m.
