Manchester Library’s annual plant, book sale this weekend

Proceeds to benefit the Friends of Manchester Library group

PORT ORCHARD — Both avid bookworms and garden worms should take note: the 2019 Plant and Book Sale benefiting the Friends of Manchester Library will take place Saturday and Sunday, April 27-28 in the parking lot.

The Manchester Library is at 8067 E. Main St. in Manchester. The sale will run from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday.

The plant sale — with the added bonus of an assorted array of books also on sale to choose from — is an annual event and is a significant fundraiser for the nonprofit organization, which supports the maintenance of the library building.

Master Gardeners will be on hand Saturday to answer questions from area amateur green thumbs. Plant experts also will be available to provide planting advice on both days. Perennials, shrubs, trees, ground covers, vegetable starts and more will be on sale.

Sponsors ask that gardeners donate plastic one-gallon or larger pots for reuse. They estimate that between 1,500-1,700 plants will be available for sale over the weekend.
