10th Annual Plant Sale (5/12/2012)
This is a FREE Event
Come celebrate the 10th Annual Plant Sale, hosted by Summerseat Farm in Mechanicsville MD, St. Mary's County, on Saturday, May 12, 2012 (rain or shine) from 8 am to 3 pm. Choose from a huge assortment of annual, perennial and unusual plants. Select from vegetable and herb plants, shrubs, trees, grasses, hanging baskets, pots, dish gardens, wood and garden crafts, wonderful gifts for Mothers Day. Many of the plants come from Summerseat's own gardens! Stop by the Maryland University Native Plant Display and Sale; the "Garden in a Bushel Basket" demonstration by Kathy York of Scarborough Farm; and an educational display and sale of Compost, "our black gold." Cash, Check, and Credit Cards accepted. The Courtyard Café has tasty and plentiful refreshments. Keeping the kids busy is our petting zoo; planting seeds to keep; playing in the Corn Pool; and, for a nominal fee, games with prizes. Enjoy the bucolic grounds of this gracious old farm whose original land grant was dated June 1678, with serene, blooming gardens, fish pond, gazebo, and the old cemetery where previous residents rest peacefully. Tour the manor house, built in 1884, visit the farm animals, including American Buffalo and Barbados sheep.
