Rhinebeck – A Mother’s Day plant sale fundraiser will be held from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 9, and Thursday, May 10, to benefit Northern Dutchess Hospital and its affiliated skilled nursing facility. 

The annual sale will take place in the lobby of the hospital, 6511 Springbrook Ave., and on Wednesday only in the lobby of Thompson House, 6525 Springbrook Ave.

“Whether shopping for a special Mother’s Day gift or for your own garden, you will find a wonderful selection of spring, summer and fall plants at our sale,” auxiliary member Brenda Klaproth said.

The sale features a bountiful selection of annuals in small and large sizes to lend instant color to gardens and planters. Also, some perennials, hanging baskets, patio planters, unique gifts, vegetables, ground covers and herbs will also be available.

“We have beautiful succulents, which require minimal watering and are striking in appearance,” Klaproth said.
