Genesee County Master Gardeners will hold their annual Fall Garden Gala from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 17 at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 East Main St., Batavia.

The event includes a plant sale, chance basket auction, free soil pH testing, a flower-arranging demonstration and advice from Master Gardeners.

The sale features hardy perennials, house plants and local field-grown mums. The Master Gardeners say that fall is a good time to plant many perennials, since they’ll have several months to grow a strong root system. Fresh flower arrangements created by Master Gardeners will also be for sale.

The plant sale starts promptly at 10 a.m.

The demonstration on Flower Arrangements from the Garden will be at 11 a.m. Learn how to artfully arrange fresh flowers from your garden.

The chance auction drawing begins at 12:30 p.m.

See more information here or contact Brandie Schultz at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County at (585) 343-3040, ext. 101, or stop by the office at 420 East Main St., Batavia.
