Here’s how to add your plant sale to the Herald’s yearly guide

We’re taking listings now for our annual list of sales in April, May and June. Don’t forget yours.

There’s no surer sign of spring than plant sales. And few things make gardeners happier.

The Herald is preparing its annual list of these sales on the Homes section — your guide for all things home and garden. If you’re a member of a garden club, flower society or other community group, email us information about your plant sale.

The listings are free. The list will include sales for April, May and June. Even if your sale is several months away, send it in now to be included on the list.

We’re planning to publish it on April 14. That’s an entire month before Mother’s Day. (Now you’ll know exactly when and where to get Mom her hanging basket!)

Here’s all we need:

Your group’s name.

Times, dates.

Place, including address.

What you’re selling. Feel free to add a sentence or two to describe this.

A phone number or email, plus a website for publication.

Please follow this simplified format instead of sending a formal news release. It’s quicker and easier to do.

The deadline to send in your listing is April 7. Put “plant sale” in the subject of your email.

Send the information to If you have questions, call Sara Bruestle at 425-339-3046 and leave a message.
