More than 120 people shopped for a variety of additions to their gardens Friday during the DuPage Convalescent Center's annual plant sale.

The sale was expected to raises hundreds of dollars to help pay for "quality of life improvements" at the convalescent center, officials said. Examples include replacing old televisions with flat screen TVs in the common areas and aesthetic improvements.
