St. Luke’s annual Plant Patch event is held during the four days preceding and including Mother’s Day. During this time, the grounds of St. Luke's become a gardener’s delight with a selection of healthy blooming annuals offered by the flat or hanging basket, perennials by the gallon bucket, and herbs and vegetables by the flat.
This event is a beloved event for the town and local community, in addition to being a great community builder for the parish - a large percentage of the parish participates in the sale either by doing presale publicity, purchasing or setup; or by taking a shift during the sale. Monies raised during St. Luke’s Plant Patch are used for funding outreach donations to various local charitable institutions and operating expenses.
In 2016 the selection of items was expanded. Perennials items include new shade tolerant varieties while still offering the popular blueberry plants and butterfly garden staples. Favorite annuals will be in bloom along with a healthy selection of vegetables and high quality herbs.
A selection of gift items includes darling moss purses filled with pansies, and flower boxes filled with herb collection themes of Italian, Mexican, and Mojitos. As always, a variety of beautiful planters will be designed to upgrade the patio or porch of any home. Come see the selection in person!
