As the saying goes, April showers bring May flowers.

But North Hills residents don't necessarily have to get their hands dirty to add the beauty of flowers and plants to their homes.

Three local garden clubs are playing host to plant sales this month:

• Graybrooke Garden Club: May 11, 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at McCandless Crossing — The club is hosting a plant sale to benefit local conservancy groups and community organizations. Hanging baskets, perennials, herbs and annuals — including some in decorative pots — will be available for purchase along with a variety of garden supplies.

The garden club will be set up in the grassy area inside the circle in front of Bonefish Grill and between Old Navy and Ethan Allen.

• Ingomar Garden Club: May 12, 8 a.m. to 3 p.m., corner of Ingomar Road and 9600 Old Perry Highway — The club's annual spring sale will feature hanging baskets, perennials, annuals, vegetables and garden crafts. The sale is a fundraiser for the club.

• Longvue Acres Garden Club: May 19, 9 a.m. to noon in upper parking lot of Northmont United Presbyterian Church. The club's 68th annual sale will feature more than 500 perennial plants grown in members' gardens and donated for the sale. A selection of indoor plants will also be available for purchase. Several club members are Penn State Master Gardeners and will be present to answer gardening questions and to help with plant selections. Proceeds are used for the club's free monthly educational programs and local non-profit organizations.

The church is located at 8169 Perry Highway in McCandless.

You are solely responsible for your comments and by using TribLive.com you agree to our Terms of Service.

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
