The Otsego County Master Gardener Volunteer Plant Sale will be held Saturday, May 28, from 9 a.m. to noon at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Education Center, 123 Lake St., in Cooperstown.
Each year the Master Gardener Volunteer Plant Sale offers perennials, annuals, herbs, and vegetables at reasonable prices. The large selections of plants are from the Master Gardeners’ private gardens and other local donations as well as from the Master Gardener Volunteers’ demonstration gardens. An assortment of wildflowers and native plants will also be available. The list of varieties is growing daily.
On the same weekend, gardeners can also visit The Farmers’ Museum for the annual Heritage Plant Sale held Saturday and Sunday, May 28-29 from 10 a.m. – 4 p.m. Find plants and cuttings from the museum’s Botanical Specimen Garden – many propagated from hardy, well-established rootstock by Patrick MacGregor, supervisor of the museum’s Thrall’s Pharmacy. Heritage vegetable plants are also available and make an excellent addition to any gardener’s landscape.
Funds raised from the Master Gardener Volunteer Plant Sale will help Master Gardener Volunteers provide environmentally sound information through the gardeners’ helpline, conduct outreach and workshop programs, and foster land and community stewardship. Master Gardener Volunteers serve as a vital link between citizens and the land grant university.
