15th Annual Master Gardener Plant Sale April 27 at Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center

Contact: Patrick Byers, horticulture specialist
Tel: (417) 881-8909

The annual Master Gardener Plant Sale in Greene County will start at 7:30 a.m., Saturday, April 27, at the Springfield-Greene County Botanical Center located in Nathanael Greene Park, 2400 S. Scenic, Springfield, Mo.

Members of the Master Gardeners of Greene County gather plants to sell from their own gardens -- and from the two city gardens that Master Gardeners maintain – at this sale.

“The quality is excellent and the prices are real bargains. Those factors have made this annual event very popular among area gardeners,” said Patrick Byers, a horticulture specialist with University of Missouri Extension.

People are advised to arrive early if they want the best choices of shrubs, small trees, bulbs, perennials, annuals, grasses, ground covers, houseplants, vegetables, herbs and garden related items. The sale continues until the plants are sold out.

The fundraiser helps the Master Gardeners of Greene County maintain the public demonstration gardens and to serve the public by providing quality educational programs and aid the University of Missouri Greene County Extension Service in garden related questions.

Last year, members in the Master Gardeners of Greene County chapter gave more than 19,000 hours in volunteer service.
