Fall garden gala in Batavia

Date(s) - Saturday, Sep 07, 2019
10:00 am - 1:00 pm


The Genesee County Master Gardeners will hold their fall garden gala from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 7 at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 East Main Street in Batavia.

It includes a plant sale and other activities. The plant sale starts promptly at 10 a.m. No early birds please. The Chance Basket Auction drawing will begin at 12:30 p.m.

This plant sale features hardy perennials, most grown by Master Gardeners. Fall is a good time to plant many perennials because there is still time for them to grow a strong root system before winter.  Locally grown mums will also be for sale as well as a selection of house plants.

At 11 a.m. check out the demonstration on how to make a macramé plant hanger.

Don’t forget to stop inside for the Chance Basket Auction. You never know what treasures may appear, including unique garden art.

The Master Gardener Helpline will also be open to answer your gardening questions.

Not sure what your garden pH is? Take a soil sample for free soil pH testing.

Learn how to artfully arrange fresh flowers (from the garden) as talented Master Gardeners create arrangements and bouquets right before your eyes. These beautiful flower arrangements will be available for sale.
