SPRING ARRIVES IN WILMINGTON, NC!!!

Master Gardner Plant Sale

Master Gardener Plant Sale

Those of us in the Landfall, NC area know this because the Master Gardener Plant Sale is running  March 25 through the 29th.   The sale takes place at the New Hanover County Cooperative Extension on Oleander Drive (right around the corner from Landfall) and there’s a lot of excitement over the 56 new varieties of annuals and perennials being offered this year.  They have substantially increased the quantities of this group giving you a better chance to shop before supplies run. Also, the gorgeous hanging baskets that were such a favorite last year will be available in much larger quantity than last year.  You’ll definitely want to pick up one of these!  An amazing array of herbs and a great selection of shrubs, including our ever popular azaleas, round out this year’s offerings.  And, of course, the sale would not be complete without the carpenters under the tent with their hand made garden crafts; always a creative addition.

Last year over 250 volunteers participated in the plant sale which is the premier fund raiser for the New Hanover County Master Gardener Association.  All proceeds support Cooperative Extension and Arboretum grounds and programs.   As spring is welcomed, it’s a fun event and a great time to be around the Arboretum.  We look forward to seeing you there.  Sign up sheets for volunteering are up!  For more information, contact Jon Wooten at 395-2332 or CC Hensley at 798-7665.  

Please call 910.798.7670 for more information on the sale, the new hours for this year’s event and much more.  Also, CLICK HERE FOR 2010 PLANT LIST, then make your wish list and get to the sale!!  Let us know how you make out.
