This is not a comprehensive list—but if you live in the Boston suburbs, it can help you spend your money wisely. Garden Club sales are staffed by the people who grew the plants you buy, and can help you choose plants and tools that will actually work in your area.

Thank you, Henry Goldberg, for assembling this list. Gardeners, start your shopping!
