Plant & Bulb Sales
Helping to raise funds in support of local causes and charities
Each May we hold a very successful plant sale offering a wide selection ranging from bedding plants, shrubs and hanging baskets to herbs and vegetables. The proceeds from the plant sale are donated to various local causes and charities which the Wirksworth Rotary Club supports.
In 2018 our plant sale took place in the Wellspring Church Hall, Wirksworth, on Saturday 12th May and we are delighted that it raised a profit of over £1500. A massive thank you and congratulations to every member of the club, their families and friends who all worked so hard during to make this year's plant sale a great success!
It was a terrific show of ingenuity and teamwork within the club and involved co-operation with the Wirksworth Growers, Wellspring Church, Peter Slack, Memory Cafe friends and Rotarians from other clubs. The plant sale helped to increase our reach into the local community, strengthen some existing friendships and create some new ones.
Our annual sale of Spring bulbs takes place in October. This is the ideal time to come and buy your crocus, daffodil, hyacinth, iris and tulip bulbs and start planting for a cheeful display of colour in your garden next Spring.
Unfortunately we have had to take the decsion not to hold a bulb sale in 2018, but we are very hopeful that this successful event will return in Autumn 2019.
