The NRV Master Gardener Association is having their second annual Plant Sale this Saturday, May 11, 2013. Gardeners will be available to chat about the plants for sale, give advice on selections, and offer council about your gardening needs.
Plants for sale come from divisions from the Master Gardener’s own gardens and greenhouse, and donations from local nurseries. Rain barrels, both painted and unpainted, will be available for sale, already plumbed and ready for installation. There will also be garden books, supplies and many other items available to purchase.
The proceeds of this sale will be used for Master Gardener functions involving education outreach and local projects. This is an opportunity to indulge your need to buy more plants, while supporting a good cause! Past recipients of grants include Eastern Montgomery School, Narrows Elementary, Margaret Beeks, Belview Elementary, the Jr. Master Gardener Association at the Hahn Pavilion, Pulaski County 4-H and Mountain Valley.
The sale will be at the Montgomery County Government Center, at 755 Roanoke Street in Christiansburg. It runs from 8:00 a.m. until 2:00 p.m. and will be held rain or shine.
The New River Valley Master Gardener Association (Virginia Cooperative Extension) is a non-profit organization working to bring horticultural education and information to the people in Montgomery, Giles, Floyd and Pulaski Counties. The Master Gardener program began in 1986 and has graduated volunteers each year spreading the benefits of gardening to the public through plant clinics.
