The Club generates most of its income through plant sales. Advertised plant sales are held twice a year in the months of April and October, although plants are available for sale all year. See our Plant Sales page for more details.
The Club plans to grow its own plants for its sales. See our Plant Propagation page with photographs of Club plant bed construction, and how plant cuttings are taken and planted.
