The Walters Gardens Perennial Plant Sale takes place Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend. For this sale, we take our surplus material and donate it to three Christian-oriented charities (different ones are selected every year) and then their staff and a few of our staff put on the sale. All proceeds are split equally three ways between the three charities. This year we are donating to the Boys and Girls Club of Greater Holland, Team WorldVision, and Teen Life on Campus.
For this year, we are again planning on that Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend (May 24-25). Hours for the sale will be 12pm-7pm on Friday and 8am-2pm on Saturday, and the sale takes place in our parking lot here at Walters Gardens in Zeeland, MI – the address here is 1992 96th Ave, Zeeland, 49464. The plants we sell are mainly large perennial liners (starter plants to go into pots for our customers, but can go directly into the ground for people shopping the sale). I have personally bought plants from the sale and put them directly into my garden, and they do great! We also sometimes have larger material in quarts, gallons or 2 gallon pots from our trials department. Prices are $1.25 each for the large liners, and are very fair prices for larger containers.
