WSU/Pend Oreille County Master Gardener Plant Sale will hold its twentieth annual plant sale Saturday, April 28th at the Stratton Elementary School Gymnasium, 1201 W. Fifth St. in Newport.
Doors will open at 9:00 am and the sale will go until 12 noon or until plants are sold out, whichever comes first. Take this opportunity to purchase Master Gardener recommended varieties of vegetables, herbs, annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, and berries that grow well in our area. Plus, for the first time, shoppers can purchase or order beautiful hanging baskets and spring flowering bulbs. Master Gardeners have also been busy gathering donations from the community for a raffle. Tickets for the raffle will be sold all morning the day of the sale – $1 each. Participants do not have to be present to win. The winning tickets will be drawn the morning of the sale.
Proceeds from this plant sale will be used to fund a long list of Master Gardener educational projects including plant clinics, the garden tour and dinner, the new demonstration garden located just west of the WSU/Pend Oreille County Extension Office, SNAP Ed schoolyard programs at all County elementary schools, and other educational & gardening programs, classes, and displays for the residents of Pend Oreille County.
