Plants are preferred, potted plants work well for our climate, but certificates for spring shipment are also welcomed. Lilyhemmer attendees are encouraged to pot up a great plant and bring it for the auction. People may also send plants to Stuart Kendig in August and September and we will pot the plant(s) for auction. Please let us know what you are donating, and forward your questions to:
