Plant sale and swap 8:30 a.m. Saturday
The Rowan County Master Gardener Annual Plant Sale and Swap and Silent Auction will be Saturday.
The sale begins at 8:30 a.m. at the Outdoor Learning Shelter and greenhouse located at 2727 Old Concord Road. The Plant Swap will start at 9:30 a.m. All will conclude at noon.
Participants in the swap should bring five perennial, desirable plants (not more than two of the same variety) in no larger than 1-gallon containers. For a $1 participation fee, the swappers will be treated to an exchange of plants brought by other plant lovers, some of which are unique and garden-worthy.
Throughout the sale and swap, a silent auction will be held. Auction items range from gift certificates provided by Godley’s Garden Center, restaurants (Lonestar Steakhouse and Applebee’s), downtown merchants (Stitchin’ Post, Simply Good, Fine Frame Gallery) and an assortment of garden themed items.
These include a gift bucket from Carolina Lily, gardening books from The Literary Bookpost, a Japanese maple furnished by the Garden Greenhouse, a rose bush donated by Rufty’s Garden Center and more.
All of the monies received from the proceeds of this sale, swap and auction provide the funds needed for the Master Gardener Association to provide education for adult and youth programming in the field of horticulture.
