Westminster’s annual plant sale got its name because, about 30 years ago, Clay Bradley was doing a renovation that required moving 25, or so, Hosta plants. We put them in pots and added some other varieties of landscape plants and put on a plant sale. The idea stuck.
Over the years the management of the sale slid under the Lohmen umbrella and folks active in that project took care of the details and used the earnings to host our German visitors or finance a gift and provide a church-wide American meal while in Lohmen.
This July a youth contingent is traveling to Germany and WPC youth will be working Hostamania to supplement their trip. What shoppers spend on donated landscape plants will be a welcome shot in the arm for these young international travelers. It is a remarkable thing to get to do.
Hostamania is always on Mother’s Day, and you will see a fine array of mostly perennial plants. The relaxed pricing means shoppers are expected to pay a fair price yet still get great bargains.
