The Washington County Master Gardeners will hold a plant sale on Saturday, April 22, from 8 a.m. to noon at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center at 7303 Sharpsburg Pike in Boonsboro.

The plant sale will feature over 3,000 plants grown by Master Gardeners including perennials, annuals, vegetables, herbs, native plants, trees, shrubs, fruits and houseplants.

A garden market will feature new and used gardening books, tools, art, gifts and supplies. A silent auction will spotlight dozens of garden items donated by local businesses.

Visitors will get free gardening tips and learn about the Master Gardener program. Children will have a children’s learning area.

All funds raised by the plant sale support the gardening education programs of the Master Gardeners. Both cash and checks will be accepted.

The event will be held rain or shine. Come early for the best selection.

Volunteer educators with the University of Maryland Extension, Master Gardeners teach people safe, effective gardening practices that build healthy gardens and communities. They give educational talks, create demonstration gardens, offer therapeutic

horticulture programs, recognize Bay-Wise landscapes, and host information booths at community events.
