Cloverleaf Garden Club’s long tradition of plant sales began in 1995 and has been the Club’s main spring event. It is held in May, usually the 1st or 2nd Saturday morning, at Mississauga’s Corbasson Community Centre, Cawthra Rd, south of the QEW.
Plants are locally grown by Club members and donated to the sale. Members volunteer to dig up plants from their own garden and from other’s gardens. They join with other members to pot up these plants, keep them watered and transport them to the sale. Members help customers with advice, selection and design choices at the sale. The majority of the plants are hardy perennials, so they can be planted immediately. Prices are competitive with other non-profit groups.
The Club has a preferred plant list which excludes invasive plants. Plants are labeled with the plant’s name and specific details, such as colour, height, flowering season and site preference - full sun, shade or part shade.
The following are lists of plants that are in demand by gardeners and usually available for sale:
