Annual plant sale

March 18, 2014 by Phil Major

Event Date: 
Sat, 04/12/2014 - 8:00am

The Parker County Master Gardeners’ annual plant sale is set for Saturday, April 12 from 8 a.m. to noon. The event will be held rain or shine in the parking lot/lawn of the Texas AgriLife Extension Service office at 604 N. Main Street in Weatherford.
There will be a tremendous selection of perennials, herbs, vegetable plants, annuals, shrubs, and roses available to help get spring gardening off to a great start.
Many of the plant varieties are native or adaptive to Parker County. Master Gardeners will be on hand throughout the event to provide information about the plants, answer questions and assist with plant selection to meet gardening needs. Each year the quantity of plants offered is increased to meet the growing demand. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own wagons or trolleys to do some serious shopping.
Master Gardeners will also have demonstration booths set up featuring honey bees and other pollinators, butterfly and container gardening, water conservation and gardening with drought tolerant plants.
Proceeds from this annual sale go toward providing horticultural education to the citizens of Parker County and promoting sound horticultural practices in everyday gardening.
Master Gardeners are volunteers for AgriLife Extension who have completed at least 50 hours of horticulture training and served a full year of internship with the local Extension office.
