The plant sale is over and we are grateful for the support that this community provides every year. We love being able to fund full scholarships to SCC students in the horticulture program and that we are able to provide support for other gardening projects in the community. We can all be proud that we are able to make a difference, beautify our yards in the process and support a local business. If you click on the “Major Projects” tab above you will find information on projects that you helped fund in the past.

Our Annual Plant Sale


Our home is the beautiful and historic Village of Pinehurst, located in the Sandhills of North Carolina. Known as the home of American golf and the longleaf pine ecosystem, its temperate climate makes gardening a popular activity.

Beautifying Our Community

Beautifying Our Gardens

Members take pride in beautifying their gardens. Hanging baskets make a striking addition to any garden .

Supporting Fellow Gardeners

We fund a full scholarship for a horticultural student at Sandhills Community College. This year we funded two.

Spring in the Garden

Signs of spring are popping up everywhere. Songbirds begin to nest in early April and you can see signs of courting activity among “couples.” Nest boxes are available at Pinehurst Village Hall for $15. The boxes are appropriate for Bluebirds and other small songbirds like chickadees, nuthatches, titmice, etc. 

Plant of the Month

The plant of the month could easily be the Azalea or the Dogwood but how about this one…the Chinese Snowball Viburnam? It’s a striking shrub when in full bloom at this time of year. It can easily be mistaken for a hydrangea. If you don’t have one, you don’t know what you’re missing. Click here for more information.

Question of the Month

When can I safely plant annuals outdoors?

Wait until the latter part of April before putting tender plants outdoors. The last expected frost date is usually around April 15 but better to err on the side of caution. Check the 7 day weather forecast to see if another cold spell is expected.
