Be sure to mark your calendar for Saturday, April 30, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. so you don?t miss the Shelby County Master Gardener plant sale. The sale will again be held at the Shelby County Cooperative Extension office, 1117 Frankfort Road. The plant sale is a great opportunity to buy home-grown perennials directly from the yards of Master Gardeners. They are locally-grown, so you know they will work in your yard. That?s not always true when you buy from nurseries or garden catalogs. In addition to perennials, Master Gardeners will offer a nice selection of herbs and some shrubs and possibly some small fruits, like blackberries. In addition, Master Gardeners will have a ?garden boutique? featuring quality garden-related items. The Shelby County High School FFA will also sell their ferns, tomato plants and annuals; the ferns are always popular and a great deal. Also check out the other vendors who will offer heirloom tomato plants, fruit trees and other garden-related items. Lunch and breakfast will be served on the grounds. The plant sale is the only Master Gardener fundraiser. The money is used to buy new plants for the Tim McClure Botanical Gardens and to help maintain the grounds. Shelby County Master Gardeners also plant and maintain the planters along Main and Washington streets. So you will be doing your community as well as your own garden a favor by stopping by. Last year, we had a great crowd despite the rain. This year?s prediction is for sun and 75 degrees! Don?t miss it!
