Master Gardeners set plant sale
CENTREVILLE — Queen Anne’s County Master Gardeners are busy getting ready for their 4th annual plant sale and open house slated for Saturday, May 20, at the University of Maryland Extension-Queen Anne’s County Office, 505 Railroad Ave., Centreville, from 9 a.m. to noon, rain or shine.
In addition to mingling with a group of passionate and knowledgeable gardeners, visitors can buy plants, introduce the kids to pollinator friendly gardening, or ask those questions about your landscape you’ve been wondering about all spring.
Master Gardeners, are volunteers who are trained by the University of Maryland Extension and will help you select the perfect plant for your garden. Maybe you’ve been longing to have some herbs by the kitchen door, or to grow that perfect heirloom tomato, or try a new variety of eggplant but don’t know how or where to find the plant. You are welcome to request advice about flower, fruit, vegetable beds and plants that can beautify your yard and provide friendly habitat for wildlife like songbirds, butterflies, bees, and humming birds.
While you’re there selecting the perfect plants mingle with the 4-H program, see a demonstration about healthy eating prepared by the Food Supplement Nutrition Education coordinator, and visit with the Agriculture and Natural resources department to learn about careers in Agriculture.
