Friday May 11 & Sat, May 12, Ellicott City’s only public garden-park, run entirely by volunteers—the Whipps Garden Cemetery—will hold its annual fund-raiser Plant Sale starting at 8 a.m. at the First Lutheran Church at corner of Chatham and Frederick Road in Dunloggin, Ellicott City.
Whipps plant sale will feature many unusual and hard-to-find varieties of
native perennial flowers, including many butterfly, shade-loving, rain garden and
deer-resistant plants. The added attraction this year will be a donation of
many certified day lilies, donated by the Ellicott City day lily grower. We
will also be sharing some of the cuttings of oakleaf hydrangea, gingko, hosta, and acuba from our Whipps’ gardens. This is a new feature we want to share with the public. We
also invite you to share any extra garden plants.
Many plants have been grown and
maintained by the Master Gardeners as well as local garden nurseries.
proceeds from the annual plant sale go for the maintenance and up-keep of the
one-acre Whipps garden-park, and fund such projects as keeping fresh wood chips
on all of the pathways, signage for trees, shrubs, and selected perennials.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to help answer your plant and gardening
