Below is more information:

Gardeners know that the selection of locally grown plant material offered by Society members is worth lining up for! There usually are shrubs, trees, house plants, perennials, annuals, herbs, canna lily and dahlias bulbs, and a number of native plants, not generally available at commercial nurseries. Additionally there is often a good selection of heritage vegetables, including different varieties of tomatoes, as these have proved very popular with buyers in the past.

The Tools and Treasures yard sale includes all kinds of garden-related implements, tools, vases, pots, decorations, books and magazines. It is held just outside the Columbus Centre where visitors line up for the start of the sale.

Once the doors open at 9 o'clock, it is a busy scene with everything laid out for the buyer on a- first-come, first-served basis. The regular shoppers know that the best plants sell out very quickly – these are the healthiest, locally grown plants at the friendliest prices!  Where else can one buy really well established hostas for a few dollars? This is a plant sale favourite, a perennial which has earned its place by being both shade tolerant and very low maintenance.The annual plant sale is a major fund-raiser, enabling the Society to program interesting speakers at its monthly meetings, and provide an annual scholarship of $1,000 for a student graduating from a Cobourg high school who is pursuing post secondary education in horticulture or a related field. 

The Society's 140+ members are all involved in some way in the plant sale, distributing flyers, digging and potting up plants, starting seeds, providing advice to buyers, or working on the organizing committee.
