A large variety of native perennials and herbs will be available as well as milkweed seeds and plants. Master Gardeners are busy potting up plants for the sale and starting seeds in the greenhouse and will be on hand to help select the right plants for your garden. Garden produce, as available, will be readied for sale. And, in response to recent inquiries, a limited number of May apples have already been potted. Master Gardener's can also purchase plants, prior to the sale, on Thursday, May 4th from 10-12.
