Local garden clubs continue to take cautious baby steps back into “normal” activities. Spring is giving several groups a big push.

Among them is the Folsom Garden Club. This weekend, it will host its Spring Plant Sale and Crafts Festival at the Murer House, 1125 Joe Murer Court, Folsom.

Sale hours will be 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday, April 24 and 25. Expect to find lots of vegetable seedlings as well as annual flowers, perennials, herbs and more.

Proceeds will benefit the club’s college scholarship fund as well as support grants and community projects.

Usually, the Folsom Garden Club hosts its annual garden tour the last weekend in April, featuring beautiful local gardens, a bake sale, crafts fair and more. But due to the uncertainty surrounding such large public events this spring due to COVID, that tour has been canceled.

Instead, the club will rely on smaller scale events – such as this weekend’s spring plant sale and craft festival – to do its fundraising and share the love of gardening.

Boasting its own fine gardens, the Murer House is once again open for tours – but only once a month. Docents lead public tours from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. on the first Saturday of each month.

Dig In: Garden Checklist

For week of Feb. 18:

It's wet to start the week. When you do get outside, between or after storms, concentrate on damage control:

* Keep storm drains and gutters clear of debris.

* Clean up tree debris knocked down by wind and rain.

* Where did the water flow in your garden? Make notes where revisions are necessary.

* Are any trees leaning? See disturbances in the ground or lawn around their base? Time to call an arborist before the tree topples.

* Dump excess water out of pots.

* Indoors, start peppers, tomatoes and eggplant from seed.

* Lettuce and other greens also can be started indoors from seed.

* Got bare-root plants? Put their roots in a bucket of water until outdoor soil dries out. Or pot them up in 1- or 5-gallon containers. In April, transplant the plant, rootball and all, into the garden.

* Browse garden websites and catalogs. It’s not too late to order for spring and summer.

* Show your indoor plants some love. Dust leaves and mist to refresh.
