Can we meet the increased need for attainable housing while preserving the beautiful landscape that is our most valued and finite resource?

Kennett Square is beginning to bloom!
A big thank you to Bill Reynolds of Pratt’s Greenhouse, the Borough of Kennett Square’s Public Works Department, and all of the amazing volunteers from the Four Seasons Garden Club and the Spade and Trowel Garden Club for brightening up the planters in town last Saturday with spring plantings!
Please see below for information on the spring plant sale to support these efforts and click here to support Kennett Blooms.
As Southern Chester County residents eagerly await the spring planting season this year, Kennett Square Beautification Committee members are raising awareness and showing solidarity with Ukrainians by featuring sunflower plant starts and seed packets at their annual plant sale.
Mark your calendar for Saturday, April 30th (8am–4pm) or Sunday, May 1st (10am–4pm) and support the annual Kennett Square Beautification Plant Sale—just in time for Mother’s Day!
You'll find a beautiful selection of hanging baskets, annuals, perennials, succulents, pollinators, container plants, and more.
This year’s plant sale will once again be held at Pratt’s Greenhouse, just off Hillendale Road in Avondale.
