From One Garden to Another

Peruse through a collection of “recycled” (ie second-hand) garden-related items, including books, decorative pots and birdfeeders, at the From One Garden to Another (FOGA) bargain booth. You’ll also find great deals on donated plants including rooted cuttings, bulbs and shrubs. All proceeds from the booth go to Maymont. Have plants or gently-used garden items to donate? Email us or call 804-358-7166, ext. 301. Some plants that have been donated in the past are acuba, bee balm, butterfly bush, daylilies, elephant ear bulbs, hostas, nandina and rose of sharon. Find out more about FOGA.
