The seasons most anticipated plant sale is right around the corner! The Collin County Master Gardener Association is preparing for its 11th Annual Plant Sale on Saturday, April 12 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. Veterans of the sale say that strategy is key. They know that this “first come- first served” event (once the plants are gone, they’re gone!) offers some of the best plants for North Texas at the best prices! These enthusiastic gardener’s line up outside hours before the doors open with lists in hand and carts in tow, eager to purchase beautiful plants recommended by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension.
This year’s selections include plants that are Texas-tough, water conserving, insect and disease resistant, and Earth-Kind® favorites. Attendees will find hundreds of varieties of annuals, perennials, trees, shrubs, vegetables, herbs, vines, roses, grasses, and new Texas Superstars that thrive in sun, part-sun, and shade. Additionally, gorgeous container gardens, offered at some of the best prices in town, are sure to add a bright spot of color to your outdoor living space. Collin County Master Gardeners with decades of collective experience will be available throughout the day for “Q&A with the MG’s” to answer questions, and offer timely tips and design ideas to help homeowners plan, and plant with confidence and success.
Purchase these proven performers by cash, check, or credit card (Visa or MasterCard only). Bringing your own cart or wagon is encouraged. Children ages 5 and up can participate in environmentally friendly activities at the Children’s Discovery Area throughout the day.
The Plant Sale will be held indoors, rain or shine, hot or cold, in the pavilion at the Texas A&M AgriLife Research and Extension Center in far North Dallas, 17360 Coit Road, between Campbell Road and the George Bush Tollway.
