North Country Master Gardener Volunteers
2018 Annual Plant Sale
This year we are offering heirloom tomatoes and an assortment of peppers. In addition we are offering a 6-pack of pollinator plants. Check out the information sheets that describe these offerings.
ARE YOU GETTING ANXIOUS TO GARDEN? While our gardens are just waking up from a very long winter, the North Country Master Gardener Volunteers from Burnett, Sawyer and Washburn Counties pictured here on April 26th, have been meeting frequently since January to prepare for an exciting growing season at the Spooner Agricultural Research Station’s Teaching and Display Garden. The plant sale, featuring heirloom tomatoes, peppers and a “new” pollinator six pack with popular perennials for attracting bees, is Saturday, May 19th at 8 am. Mark your calendars to attend the ever popular Twilight Tour on August 14, as well as several new activities in the planning stages for June and July. We look forward to sharing new plants, new designs, new ideas in exchange for yours! Watch for future announcements and blog posts.
LET’S GET SOCIAL - COME GROW WITH US!
