St. Peter’s Episcopal Church will hold its Annual Spring Plant Sale on Sunday May 20, from 8:30 a.m. to 12 noon in the church’s courtyard at 211 Mulberry Street in Lewes. This event is open to the public. Back by popular demand will be the Garden Boutique for those wonderful non-plant items that gardeners love so dearly. Shoppers can expect to find books, garden ornaments, decorative pots, custom made birdhouses, garden tools and other garden-themed material.
Proceeds from the plant sale will fund new projects as well as enhance existing displays during the year. Past sales have funded the meditation garden, shade garden, and spring bulb display. The church depends on donations from the many talented gardeners in the congregation to provide the vast variety plants for sale. In the past, there have been annuals, vegetables, fruits, herbs, perennials, shrubs, ornamentals, and bulbs among the many donations.
St. Peter’s is one of the oldest churches in America and located at the corner of Second and Market Streets in downtown historic Lewes. This lovely house of worship is surrounded by churchyard gardens filling an entire city block (also known as St. Peter’s Square). There is a meditation garden, shady resting garden, prayerful labyrinth, and a host of flowering plants and trees scattered within its historic cemetery. All of this provides a beautiful, welcoming, year-round resting spot for visitors and members of the congregation.
