Stuck at Home Due to COVID-19? How about planting some flowers & vegetables from Bartram’s Garden

As we begin to welcome beautiful, warm spring days, a safe way of dealing with the restrictions of COVID-19 would be to plant some flowers in the front yard or start a small vegetable or herb garden out back. 

To do that quickly and safely would be to go online and check out some of the plants and vegetables available at the Bartram’s Garden annual Spring Plant Sale.
