The Benton County Master Gardener Association Annual Plant Sale is Saturday, May 4 at the Benton County Fairgrounds, 110 SW 53rd St, Corvallis. The sale is under cover at the Solar Barn so don’t let a little rain keep you away. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You’ll find over 10,000 plants at great prices. Come early for the best selection. Payment can be made by cash, check, credit or debit card.
Ornamental plants include sun and shade perennials, groundcovers, shrubs, vines, and trees. The collection includes native, deer resistant and drought tolerant plants. Emphasis this year is on native and pollinator-friendly plants. Many plants are from gardens in the local area. Locally sourcing the plants ensures that they’ll do well in local garden conditions.
Vegetable and herbs grown from seed include tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, tomatillos, and many others selected after showing good results in local gardens. Perennial edibles include rhubarb, berries, grapes, hops, and fruit trees.
Benton County Master Gardeners are on hand to help customers find plants suited to their own growing needs and answer your gardening questions. Getting the right plant for the right place improves gardening success, which is what the BCMGA is all about.
Proceeds from the sale support educational programs in our schools and community. Master Gardeners answer hundreds of questions at farmer’s markets, local plant clinics, and through the Extension Office hotline. Seed to Supper classes teach novices to grow their own food. Other programs include lectures and demonstration gardens. These programs and more are self-supporting though efforts like the plant sale.
