The Door County Master Gardeners Association will hold its annual plant sale at the UW Extension Peninsular Research Station on May 28, 9 am – noon. Local gardeners will want to come and browse the terrific variety of plants on sale this year.
There will be annuals, vegetables, herbs, perennials, some wildflowers, and wildlife friendly and ornamental shrubs. This year the sale features a special selection for gardeners who like to grow their own healthy food. There will be eight different kinds of peppers, four varieties of kale, collards, a number of tomatoes and many types of basil. In short, the sale offers a culinary dream of healthy additions to the home vegetable and herb garden.
As always, Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand to answer gardening questions, offer advice, and to assist with selections. Gardeners should prepare their lists and arrive ready to find plants that will do well here in Door County. A list of the plants offered for sale will be posted on the Master Gardener’s website (dcmga.org) one week before the event.
All proceeds provide support for the Master Gardeners continuing free public education programs during the winter months. The sale also helps fund The Garden Door, a public display garden and one of the county’s hidden gems.
