Master Gardener Plant Sale
Each year, Master Gardener Volunteers and CCE staff hold our annual plant sale in May, at the Dutchess County Farm & Home Center in Millbrook. Our volunteers grow and sell a wide variety of annuals, perennials, vegetables and herbs. Some of these varieties are “tried and true” favorites, others are exciting new introductions. This is our primary fundraiser and we count on your support! At this event, we also have a Master Gardener info booth set up. Our volunteers are available to answer your gardening questions and to help you make your plant selections.
The 2019 plant sale is scheduled for Friday, May 17 (10 AM-4 PM) & Saturday, May 18 (9 AM-2 PM). No early birds please!
Here are the lists of plants that will be for sale as of May 1.
Our plant sale features a wonderful selection of healthy annuals (flowering and foliage), perennials, vegetables and herbs. All plants are grown by our Master Gardener volunteers. We offer personal service! Volunteers will be available during the plant sale to answer gardening questions, to help make plant selections and to help bring plants to cars if needed.
Once again this year, we will be selling garden books donated by Master Gardener Volunteers. These will be gently used, modestly priced, and include books on specific gardening topics, inspirational gardens, research and reference, and perhaps a few “oldies but goodies”. Some MGVs are down-sizing and others are trading-up. But all are eager to share their favorite books with other gardeners to help raise funds for our Community Horticulture programs.
Gift certificates are available for our Master Gardener Plant Sale too. These certificates are a welcome gift for any gardener! Certificates may be purchased for any amount and are not redeemable for cash. To purchase a Master Gardener Plant Sale gift certificate, please contact Nancy Halas by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by calling 845-677-8223 × 115. Please contact Nancy before stopping by our office. Visa, MC, checks and cash accepted.
In 2011, all funding for our Community Horticulture Program was cut by the county. We depend on the continued success of the plant sale to continue our educational programming. Your support is needed and greatly appreciated!
