May 07, 2007

The Washington County Master Gardeners will hold a plant sale and plant clinic on Thursday, May 10, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Public Square in front of R. Bruce Carson Jewelers in Hagerstown.

The plant sale will feature hundreds of plants grown by Master Gardeners including perennials, herbs, fruits and shrubs. Several unusual plants will be featured including 4-foot "Fireworks" solidago, wild ginger, yellow scabiosa, dame's rocket, wood ferns and freckled violets.

Plants will be priced below retail. Visitors can save more by picking up discount coupons at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center on Sharpsburg Pike (Md. 65). All funds raised will support the gardening education programs of the Master Gardeners.

Master Gardeners are trained volunteer educators who teach people how to use safe, effective gardening practices to build healthy gardens and communities. They give educational talks, create demonstration gardens, teach children about gardening and offer plant clinics.
