life in the Kearsarge area

what's happening in the Kearsarge/Lake Sunapee area of NH

One way to celebrate Mother’s Day

Looking for something different to do with mom? The Concord City Auditorium has a unique idea. On Saturday, May 9, from 8 a.m. to noon, they will be hosting the 9th Annual Perennial Exchange. Hundreds of gardeners bring their perennial plants to the Prince Street parking lot where they split and swap plants.

All you have to do is dig a few plants out of your garden, split them into handfuls, put them into cans or newspapers, and water them well. Add them to the selection on the table, then choose among the varieties brought by other gardeners. The assortment changes all morning, which adds to the fun of the swap. There’s even a master gardener on hand if you need advice or ideas, and a raffle with prizes.

Plan to come back in the evening for “Broadway on Prince Street” with the Granite State Symphony Orchestra and Concord Chorale. It will be a great day for mom! More information is on
