On Tuesday, April 2, over 30 Lombard Garden Club volunteers met at Lilacia Park to prune and pot the 450 Lilac bushes offered for sale at the club’s 50th Anniversary Lilac Bush Sale. The dates of the sale are Thursday, May 9, 3-7 p.m.; Friday, May 10, 8 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and Saturday, May 11, 8 a.m. until sold out. Choices go quickly and every year all the bushes and trees are sold out. Despite the cold weather, these volunteers worked until the pots were all filled and ready to be sold. Lombard Park District workers helped by making a huge enriched dirt pile and, as the pots were filled, carted the potted lilacs to their location for sale day. Check the Lombard Garden Club website at for photos of the lilac bushes in the sale.
