Fresh plants from a grower and donated plants from neighbors at the Wicker Park sale

Two plant sales this weekend can give gardeners a head start on their 2019 gardening season and provide unique Mother's Day gift shopping.


Friday the plants selected on Thursday arrived at the park

Ten people worked a total of more than 50 shopping hours on Thursday selecting vegetables, herbs, flowering plants and house plants to fill 50 tables for the Annual Wicker Park Plant Sale, 1425 N. Damen, Saturday and Sunday, May 11 and 12, from 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Plants go quickly, so be sure to be at the park early.

There is a special kids area both days. One space is for painting artwork to be used in a soon to be created music series banner. Another area is set up for kids to decorate pots then plant them with seeds for gifts for their mom or another special person.

On Saturday only Medula Chiro One will be giving health tips.

All proceeds go to maintaining the 10,000 sq. ft. of the luscious Wicker Park gardens.
