Fall is the best time to add to your home landscape. Are you interested in adding fruiting plants or trees to your yard? If so, purchase them from Rowan County 4-H. You’ll be purchasing quality plants that grow well in our area, plus you are financially supporting our local 4-H program.
The plant sale began on Sept. 1 and we are accepting orders until Thursday, Oct. 27. This is a pre-order only sale and we have limited inventory available for each item. Do not delay or your favorite plants will be gone!
We are selling several varieties of the following plants: bunch grape, blueberry, blackberry, muscadine, fig, mulberry, goji berry, pomegranate, elderberry, persimmon (American and Japanese), apple, peach, pear, plum and pecan. We have currently sold out of raspberry and the Pink Lady apple trees. For a full list of plant varieties and descriptions and their prices, go to https://rowan.ces.ncsu.edu/2022/09/rowan-county-4-h-fall-plant-sale-2022/.
To order, call the Extension office at 704-216-8970. Our office is open Monday-Friday from 8 a.m.-5 p.m.
Once you order, we are requesting that you send in your payment prior to pick up to increase efficiency on the day of plant pick up. We can only accept exact cash or checks. Please make checks payable to CES.
Plant pick up will be on Thursday, Nov. 3, from 8:30 a.m.-4:30 p.m. at the Rowan County Cooperative Extension office.
