The 2011 Forsyth County Master Gardener Plant Sale will be Friday, September 16th, from noon to 6:00 pm and Saturday, September 17th, from 8:00 am to noon. The sale takes place rain or shine at the Forsyth County Agricultural Building, 1450 Fairchild Road, Winston-Salem. Funds raised by this annual event support Master Gardener projects and outreach programs for adults and children in Winston-Salem and Forsyth County.
Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand throughout the sale with advice on selecting and growing plants, which are donated by local nurseries and garden centers and by volunteers. The wide selection of plants usually includes perennials for sun and shade, native wildflowers and ferns, herbs, ground covers, trees, shrubs and roses. There will also be an assortment of pansies and large, potted mums.
For those who want to shop over the lunch hour, grilled hot dogs, cold drinks and baked goods will be sold Friday from noon to 1:00 pm. Shop Friday afternoon for the best selection of plants, or take a chance and shop on Saturday morning, when all remaining plants except mums and pansies will be sold at half price.
