NSAGC Annual Plant Giveaway
Promoting Gardening through Association
Every member of an NSAGC garden club is given a complimentary plant as a perk of membership with the NSAGC. Every year, the Board of Directors votes on the plant selection based on supplier availability and purchases the plants in bulk.
This year brings a change as the plants give-away will be in the form of young plants, approximately 2" in size, opposed to the traditional bareroots given in previous years. In addition to the complimentary plant, the NSAGC also offers its clubs the opportunity to purchase additional plants at a low fee.
