Spring has been slow in coming, but it'll pop soon, and everyone will be ready to plant.

In addition to the offerings of area stores and nurseries, many nonprofit groups host plant sales as fundraisers. Here is the master list. Every succeeding Sunday through the season, we'll repeat the coming week's sales. If your group is having a sale and you're not listed, please send an email to agaul@qctimes.com with "plant sale" in the tag line.

Happy planting!
