[wide] [wide]This year\u2019s Mother\u2019s Day Plant Sale, hosted by the Wilton Garden Club, will include several relatively new features to entice buyers to try their hand at gardening.\u201cLast year we sold bags of dahlia tubers for the first time, and they sold out instantly, so we\u2019re going to sell more of them this year,\u201d says Nan Merolla, the club\u2019s president. \u201cWe have some very select, hard-to-find varieties that we\u2019re selling for just a few dollars.\u201d According to Merolla, dahlias offer many benefits. \u201cPeople who have a deer problem will love them because they\u2019re deer-resistant. They require full sun, but other than that they\u2019re very easy to grow, and the flowers are fantastic.\u201d At the other end of the spectrum, the club will offer some decidedly upscale items to buyers. \u201cWe\u2019re going to offer a beautiful selection of troughs and glass terrariums. These are unique items for people who are looking for a special, one-of-a-kind gift,\u201d says Merolla. The sale will also feature hundreds of items for the garden including annuals, perennials, vegetables, herbs, wildflowers, and shrubs as well as plants for sun, shade, and container gardening. The Mother\u2019s Day Plant Sale, which is the club\u2019s primary fund-raiser, will be held Friday, May 6, from noon to 6, and Saturday, May 7, from 9 to noon, rain or shine, at Wilton\u2019s Town Green.
