The Genesee County Master Gardeners will host their annual Fall Garden Gala from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 16 at the Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 East Main St., Batavia.
Plant sale starts promptly at 10 am.; no early birds.The plant sale features hardy perennials, most of which are grown by Master Gardeners, as well as house plants. A selection of locally, field grown mums will also be for sale. Fall is a good time to plant many perennials as they will have time to grow a strong root system before winter.
Stop inside to check out the Chance Basket Auction and Silent Auction. The Chance Basket Auction drawing will begin at 12:30 p.m. 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? Bring in a soil sample for free soil pH testing.
Learn how to artfully arrange fresh flowers at the “Flower Arrangements from the Garden” demonstration at 11 a.m. A variety of fresh flower arrangements and bouquets, created by Master Gardeners, will also be for sale.
