Lewes In Bloom Warehouse and Plant Sale 2021
We are happy to announce the annual Lewes in Bloom Plant Sale is back this year!
When: Saturday, May 1st, 2021, 9 am – 3 pm.
Where: Lewes in Bloom Warehouse, Schley Avenue, Lewes, DE 19958
This is the first year Lewes in Bloom will hold the plant sale at our warehouse on Schley Avenue – much more convenient, with parking available.
Please come ready to purchase a vast variety of donated plants, straight from the gardens of Lewes in Bloom members! It is the perfect time of year to add healthy perennial selections to your home garden.
In collaboration with Cape Henlopen High School’s plant science division, we will also be featuring plants grown by Cape students from their campus greenhouse.
And in another first, we will be selling new and used garden accessories, such as coco liners and wrought-iron basketry. We look forward to seeing you there!
Lewes May Day – Help LIB Welcome Spring to Lewes
There is a spring event coming on May 1st where you can maintain social distancing while participating. Lewes in Bloom is sponsoring a Lewes May Day celebration to welcome a long-awaited spring! Merchants and residents of Lewes are invited to hang May baskets with fresh flowers or attach a bouquet with fresh flowers, on your door or doorknob, on Saturday, May 1st, by 10:00 a.m.
To be included in the judging, you must register your address by CLICKING HERE to go to our MAY DAY PAGE and filling in the registration form. There is also more information on the event and some examples of May Day Baskets on the May Day Page.
Awards will be given in two categories—one for business participants and one for residential entries. There will be a First and Second prize in each category, plus a prize for Most Original Basket in both categories.
Whether any Lewes resident or business wants to enter a light-hearted May basket competition or not, LIB is urging residents to restore the tradition of honoring May Day with fresh flowers on their doors. It can be as simple as a daffodil tied with a ribbon to a doorknob or as elaborate as a May basket or wreath filled with flower bouquets. If one doesn’t have a garden, then buy a May basket or bouquet from any of our local florists or markets. Lewes in Bloom hopes this could be the start of a new tradition. All residents and business owners can welcome spring and join with this community-wide display of floral expression.
Garden renamed in honor of Warren
A sign dedicating Gateway Garden as the Warren S. Golde Gateway Garden was erected by the Delaware River and Bay Authority to honor all the work over the years and dedication of the Founder of Lewes in Bloom.
