Check out the Master Gardeners plant sale this Saturday

Learn about composting, have gardening questions answered by Master Gardeners and pick up some cool plants Saturday at the Jefferson County Master Gardeners Market Day and Spring Plant Sale at Hanger No. 4 at the Southeast Texas Regional Airport (5000 Jerry Ware Drive).

The sale opens at 11 a.m. (and trust me, there will be people in line by 10 or 10:30) and lasts until 2 p.m..

Plants for sale include citrus, bulbs, perennials, vines, and the ever popular Peggy Martin roses. Last year, while I stood with several others waiting for the “doors” to open, everyone I spoke to said the same thing: I came early because I wanted to be sure to get a Peggy Martin.

The day includes a garage sale, kid’s corner, food booth and vendor booths. The money goes to scholarship programs, the demonstration garden at the airport and programs that encourage gardening in Southeast Texas. Admission – and parking – are free. For more details, call (409) 835-8461.
