Bremen Library Plant Sale May 19,2012 at 9:00 AM

The Bremen Library's annual plant Sale has developed a reputation among local gardeners for the quality and variety of plants offered. Volunteers have been heading into area gardens to dig perennials to sell at the big sale. Some years there are close to a thousand plants to choose from. All have survived winter in Maine and are hardy to the region. They are reasonably priced and the plant tags include growing requirements (sun or shade) and the name in Latin. From herbs to lilacs the variety will surprise. The sale opens at 9:00 am. Come early because the crowds are big and the plants go fast. At the same time as the plant sale, the library also holds a used book sale inside the library. The library has been collecting book donations for the sale. There is always a good assortment of fiction as well as nonfiction.And the books are priced to move. Now's the perfect time to stock up on books for the beach or to put on the bedside table for your summer guests.The book sale opens at 8:30 so you can do some shopping while you wait for the plant sale to start. There will also be a baked goods sale with delicious pies, cookies, cakes and other goodies baked by Bremen bakers for the sale.
