Master Gardener Plant Sale!

Spring is finally here! And what better way to explore its possibilities than by attending the annual Pender County Master Gardener Plant Sale, Friday, April 16, from 9am-5pm and Saturday, April 17, from 9am-4pm at the Pender County Cooperative Extension, 801 S. Walker Street in Burgaw.

For the flower lover, in addition to having an ample color palate of annuals and perennials to purchase, special focus will be given this year to flowering plants that attract beneficial insects and pollinators. Those with culinary tastes will savor a variety of herbs, vegetables, and fruit plants as well as free gardening classes on Saturday:

  • Summer Vegetable Gardening at 10am
  • Home Fruit Production at 1:30pm
Both classes are free, but registration is required by April 15. Call 259-1235 to register.

Master gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and offer advice. Proceeds from the sale benefit Pender County Cooperative Extension Educational Programs and Teaching Gardens. For more information on the Plant Sale, please call 259-1235.
