Plant sale coming up!

If you're a person who loves to garden, like me, you love to plant something new each season. That is why I am excited because I just received the news that the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers’ (MGEVs) would be holding their first annual Fall Plant Sale. Each spring they hold a very large and successful spring plant sale and it is a very popular event. People are standing in line to get in for the healthy and beautiful plants they offer for sale.

Because of this, they have decided to hold the fall sale on Saturday, October 5th from 9:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. at the Coweta County Extension greenhouse located next to the horse arena just inside the Coweta County Fairgrounds, 275 Pine Road, Newnan.

According to the MGEVs, fall is a great time to plant shrubs, perennials, and trees and they have been very busy propagating, growing, and transplanting plants for the upcoming sale. There will be a large variety of plants including chrysanthemums, ferns, coneflowers, bearded iris, Shasta daisy, butterfly bush, beautyberry, forsythia, gardenia, hydrangea, willow, bitter orange, crape myrtle, plus many more. Fall vegetables will be ready as well. They promise reasonable prices and garden-ready plants.

Don't arrive late because they plants go fast.

Master Gardener Extension Volunteers (MGEVs) support UGA Cooperative Extension--Coweta County through community education, raising funds for scholarships and supporting 4-H.
If you have questions or need additional information please contact the Coweta County Extension Office at (770) 254-2620.
