Plants on Sale. You are sure to find a huge selection of plants: over 75 varieties of veggie starts, herbs and tomatoes, +155 perennials and grasses, and natives and ornamental shrubs and trees. We will post a catalogue of edibles and seeds for sale later. For the early starters, think of the tomato plants that will include hundreds of edibles for summer gardens of all kinds. Plan to Ask a Master Gardener to answer your questions about plants as you browse.

If you are interested in garden plants other than veggies, then this is the sale for you. Master Gardeners have been propagating and potting plants since last fall to ensure that you have a huge selection of perennials, ornamentals including trees and shrubs, and natives.

A number of local vendors will join this sale to provide their own specialty products including unusual plants and garden display items that will provide the perfect focal point for your garden.

Questions about Plants? The Master Gardeners will have their own booth and the MG Diagnosticians will be on hand to answer your plant questions. Bring your ideas and questions and get more design ideas as you wander the sale.
