Master Gardener Fall Plant Sale
The annual Forsyth County Master Gardener Plant Sale, which draws gardeners from throughout the Triad, this year promises to offer a wider variety of plants and extended hours of operation. The sale will open Friday, Sept. 21, from 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. On Saturday, Sept. 22, the sale continues from 9 a.m. to noon. The plant sale takes place rain or shine at the Forsyth County Agricultural Building, 1450 Fairchild Rd., Winston-Salem.
The event is the principal fundraiser to support Master Gardener projects and outreach programs for adults and children in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
In addition to plants generously donated by local nurseries and garden centers, Master Gardener Volunteers have propagated and grown a variety of ornamental plants for the sale, with special emphasis on species native to the Southeastern U.S. The selection will include perennials for sun and shade, ground covers, trees and shrubs, as well as some herbs and edibles. There will also be an assortment of premium quality potted mums. Volunteers will be on hand during the sale providing advice on choosing and growing plants.
For those who want to shop over the lunch hour, grilled hot dogs, cold drinks and baked goods will be sold Friday from noon to 1 p.m.
Shop early for the best selection of plants.
