First Congregational United Church of Christ will hold its annual Flower and Plant Sale Mother’s Day weekend.

First Congregational United Church of Christ, 615 N. First St. in DeKalb, will hold its annual Flower and Plant Sale Mother’s Day weekend, May 9 and 10.

Hours for the sale are 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Saturday.

Items for sale include hanging baskets, annuals, perennials, vegetables and more.

All proceeds benefit area nonprofit agencies.

For more information, call 815-758-0691 or visit www.uccdekalb.org.

The church is seeking donations of perennial plants.

“While we have truckloads of annuals to sell, we make the biggest profit on the plants from your yard that you are willing to divide and share,” member Joan Protano said in a news release. “Dividing perennials is good for them and encourages them to grow. When you share them with us, we are encouraged to grow, too.”

Pots and potting soil for donated plants are available at the church. Pots must be labeled with information about the plants. For information on how to divide plants, call Tom Harris at 815-784-5687.
