MARSHFIELD, Mo. -- The annual Webster County Master Gardener Plant Sale will be held Saturday, May 10, 2014, from 8 a.m. to 12 p.m. (or until plants sell out), at the Webster County Extension Center, 800 S. Marshall St. (next to City Hall), in Marshfield. The sale will be held rain or shine.

A large variety of plants, mostly provided by Master Gardeners from their own gardens or gathered from public gardens they maintain as University of Missouri Extension volunteers, will be for sale.

“The quality and diversity of plants is excellent, and the prices are real bargains. People are advised to arrive early if they want the best choices of hostas, ferns, flowers, ornamental grasses, trees, hanging baskets, and garden-related items,” said Bob Schultheis, University of Missouri Extension natural resource engineering specialist and coordinator for the Webster County Master Gardener program.

Proceeds from this plant sale help Master Gardeners fund community beautification projects and continue the group’s mission of providing unbiased, research-based landscaping and gardening education to the public.

Concessions will be provided by the Webster County 4-H Clubs, and will include biscuits and gravy, baked goods, and hot and cold drinks.

Master Gardeners helped multiply the horticultural educational efforts of University of Missouri Extension faculty and staff, by contributing over 1,080 hours of volunteer service in 2013 on various projects that benefited communities throughout the county.

For more information about the plant sale, or about the Master Gardener program, contact the Webster County Extension Center by telephone at 417 859-2044, by e-mail at, stop by the office on South Highway A (next to city hall) in Marshfield, or visit online to
