Demo Garden open this Sat and Member Pre-sale ordering information

The Demo Garden is open this Saturday, May 12 from 9am to 12pm to move the Spring Fair wood tables and donated perennial plants onto the tables. Please come out and help.

Member – Pre-Sale ordering Information

We will again make annuals available during the Master Gardener Pre Plant Sale, held Saturday afternoon May 19, from 1-3pm at the Demo Garden. However, we need your help to make it a success. The spring plant sale is profitable when we sell out so we must order carefully. If you are interested in purchasing annuals at the pre-sale please send an email of the type of plant and approximate number (entire flat, a six pack, 4 inch pot) that you plan to purchase. We have the typical assortment of annuals including begonia, ageratum, alyssum, petunia, marigolds, salvia, snapdragons and zinnia. We will be using your requests for rough ordering purposes only.  There will be no holds on the day of the sale. Please send your order requests to ekathmurr@aol.com by Sunday, May 13.

Please note – due to the downy mildew problems expected again this year on Impatiens walleriana, we won’t be offering these plants for sale again this year. Popular replacements that are not affected are New Guinea impatiens, big leaf begonia and coleus. We will have a large selection of all these fine plants available to Master Gardeners and the public.

And please start saving boxes for the Fair and bring them to the Demo Garden the weekend of the Fair. Thanks, Joanne Krueger
