JAMESTOWN, NEW YORK (May 2, 2016) – Area residents eager to spring into gardening will find inspiration and bargains at the upcoming Master Gardeners’ sale of plants, yard art, and gently used gardening tools, clothing and books.
A program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Chautauqua County, the Master Gardeners will hold its annual fundraising sale Saturday, May 14, from 9 a.m. to noon, at the Frank W. Bratt Agricultural Center, located at 3542 Turner Road, Jamestown, near the airport.
A special feature this year is a free, container gardening demonstration at 10 a.m. in the Bratt Agricultural Center’s large meeting room, with no reservations required.
Each year, MG volunteers donate a wide variety of plants for the sale, including perennial flower, grass and shrub divisions, as well as annual flowers and vegetables grown from seed, and a few young trees.
Native plants are grouped together and clearly marked for shoppers interested in the benefits of landscaping with these hardy, eco-friendly species. Most plants are priced from two to five dollars, with payment by cash or personal check only.
