The Polk County Master Gardeners' annual Plant Sale is held yearly on the Friday and Saturday of Mother's Day weekend. Our annual Plant Sale is an event that locals anticipate eagerly every year! You can find more than 49 varieties of tomatoes, an impressive variety of culinary herbs, lots of squash, peppers and several different kinds of grafted vegetables, annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, trees, shrubs and grasses.
The Polk County Master Gardeners also pride ourselves on the selection of hard-to-find plants, live demonstrations (see below center) and gardening-related vendors (see below right).
One of our most popular areas is our Country Store, where you can find Yard art, tea pots, garden tools, bird cages, planters and pots and more! (See below left)
The Polk County Master Gardeners are available to answer your questions in the office or over the phone every Tuesday and Thursday from 9 AM to 12 NOON.
289 E. Ellendale, Suite 301
