Annual VincaOfficial Flower - The Annual Vinca
The annual Vinca plant has been the official flower of the Bath Gardening Club since 1993. The Cora Punch variety is disease resistant to fungal blight, is heat and drought tolerant, and offers bountiful, five-petaled blooms that are attractive to butterflies. 

Barrel on Main StreetBarrels and Planters on Main Street
The barrels and planters on Main Street are maintained by Bath Gardening Club volunteers. In the spring, members help to renew the soil, plant the annuals, and supervise the placement of the barrels by the Loyalist Township.  In addition, the flower bed at Schell's Market is maintained by the BGC, and for the winter season, the Club fills the planters and barrels with boughs and seasonal decorations.

Annual Plant SaleAnnual Plant & Fertilizer Sale
Bath Gardening Club holds a plant sale each spring in Centennial Park. This event has become our major fund raiser for the year. A volunteer committee of Club members organizes and runs the event. Members of the club contribute plants from their gardens, including an excellent selection of annuals, perennials, seedlings, ready-to-go containers, dish gardens, herbs, vegetables, houseplants, as well as good second-hand garden paraphernalia and horticultural books and magazines, all for sale. Also available since 2010 is our special brand of fertilizer mix (Fritz Mix). The plant sale provides an opportunity to talk to Club members who are active and successful gardeners in the Bath area. Our plant sale has become very popular and is mostly sold out within a few hours. It is a great way to expand the variety of plants in your garden at very reasonable cost. The plant sale is open to all, cash only, rain or shine, and all proceeds go to the Club's community beautification efforts.
