The Genesee County Master Gardeners will host their annual Fall Garden Gala and Plant Sale from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16 at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 East Main St., Batavia.
Arrive at 10 a.m. for the best plant selection. No early birds, please.
This plant sale features hardy garden perennials, most of which are grown by Master Gardeners. Fall is a good time to plant many perennials as there is still time for them to grow a strong root system before winter. A wide variety of house plants will also be available for sale.
The gala offers more:
- Learn how to artfully arrange flowers fresh from the garden, as talented Master Gardeners create arrangements and bouquets right before your eyes. These beautiful flower arrangements will be available for sale.
- There will be a basket auction; the drawing will begin at 12:30 p.m.
- The Master Gardener Helpline will be open to answer your gardening questions. Not sure what your garden soil pH is? Take a soil sample for a free pH testing.
Proceeds from the sale benefit the educational outreach of the Genesee County Master Gardener Program.
