Snohomish County’s Biggest Plant Sale is May 7

I’ll be working the sale, make sure you say ‘hi’ if you stop by!! Here’s the news release sent out this afternoon:

Thousands and thousands of plants—vegetable starts, over a hundred varieties of tomatoes, peppers, herbs, perennials of all kinds, native plants, trees, shrubs, ground covers, specialty perennials—all to be sold in just five hours starting at 9 a.m., Saturday, May 7, at McCollum Park.

Snohomish County’s largest fundraising plant sale benefits the WSU-Snohomish County Extension Master Gardener program. Most of the plants have been raised, divided and potted by Master Gardeners, who will be available to answer questions throughout the sale area, which covers three parking lots.

In addition, eight specialty nurseries will be selling unusual, hard-to-find plant varieties.

This once-a-year event is staged outside the Extension offices in South Everett at the back of McCollum Park, 600 – 128th St. SE.

All proceeds benefit the Snohomish County Master Gardener Foundation, which is a 501(c)3 non-profit, and which provides support to the county’s Master Gardener projects, which include plant problem clinics throughout the county and three demonstration gardens among other projects.

For more information call the Master Gardener Hotline at 425-357-6010 or visit the Foundation website http://www.snohomish.wsu.edu/.
