Mason County Garden Club Plant Sale
The Mason County Garden Club holds two plant sales annually at Leveaux Park, one in May and the other in September. The sales are held at Leveaux Park, East Ludington Avenue near Madison Street, in Ludington. It is a great time to get various plants and bulbs to brighten up your garden. You can either bring a plant to exchange, or you can purchase a plant if you don’t have any to exchange.
AFFEW Annual Native Plant Sale
The Annual Native Plant Sale in mid-June is hosted by AFFEW at Rotary Park, downtown Ludington. There are also a variety of plants available for purchase on pick-up day as well. Native plants are great for any landscape and are highly tolerant to year-round weather conditions in Michigan. They are also more resistant to pests, disease and drought. For more information visit
