(WXYZ) - Becoming a successful homeowner takes more than paying a mortgage. It includes maintaining beautiful yards, planting gardens and flowers and staying on top of necessary repairs. That’s why Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County is hosting its third annual Mother’s Day Weekend Flower & Plant Sale May 10-11 at its Pontiac headquarters.
The event features free landscaping/gardening sessions open to the public, discounted plants and Mother’s Day flowers. Master gardeners will be on hand to offer planting advice.
During the second day of the event (Saturday, May 11), master gardeners will conduct presentations on Basic Landscaping and Design, Curb Appeal and Gardening on a Budget. This event also serves as the launch for Habitat for Humanity of Oakland County’s Women Build project – a home build led by local, leading women.
Along with selling plants at affordable prices, the educational opportunities are geared towards homeowners learning to landscape on a budget, as part of Habitat’s ongoing support to “green” (or inexperienced) partner families.

May 11 th: 9 a.m.-5 p.m.
