The 2021 Master Gardener Spring Plant Sale will be brought to you in a COVID safe manner. Hold the dates May 8-11 for online ordering and May 14-16 for curbside pickup.
CCEDC’s Master Gardener Volunteers are excited to announce that our Spring Plant Sale will offer the carefully chosen and lovingly raised plants you’ve come to anticipate every year. But this year you will order them online. Plant descriptions and growing needs will be available in the online store as well as on this web page (see below) to help you plan your garden purchases. The online store will also have photos of each plant, so you can shop with your eyes as well! At check-out you will schedule a pickup time at the Farm & Home Center in Millbrook. MGVs will collect the plants you ordered, pack them in boxes for transport, and load them into your car.
Details of the online sale will be posted and communicated as they are finalized. Our plan is to be open for online sales on Saturday morning May 8 through Tuesday evening May 11. We plan to have the store up and running before then so you can be comfortable using it. Wednesday May 12 and Thursday May 13, MGVs will start filling orders and packing boxes for scheduled curbside pickup Friday May 14-Sunday May 16. Watch this site for more information. Questions? Use our Contact Us form and select Gardening as the topic.
Meanwhile these files describe the plants which we are growing.
Last year’s sale would have been the 24th CCEDC annual plant sale. When COVID restrictions were initiated, hundreds of perennials were already potted in the greenhouse, scores of foliage plants had been propagated, seeds were purchased, and thousands of annuals were in transit. We closed the sale to the public, grew what we had at safe distances and outside, didn’t sow the seeds and limited the sale to MGVs. Safety was our top priority. In the end no one was ill and no plants were composted. We are determined to be just as safe this year and as successful as in previous years.
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 support our educational programming. Your support is needed and greatly appreciated!
