0

The Hamilton County Master Gardener Association will hold its 14th annual plant sale from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday in the Exhibition Hall at the Hamilton County 4-H Grounds, 2003 E. Pleasant St., Noblesville. More than 12,000 plants will be for sale to the public. In addition to the diverse selection of perennials, annuals, vegetables and trees, bearded iris will be available – dug to order – at the iris/daylily bed.

Master Gardener Alice Overton said an extensive selection of native plants will be offered at the sale.

“Good size trees may be purchased on site,” she said. “Plants are grown with care by Master Gardeners, are acclimated to Indiana’s climate and are priced well below local garden centers.”

The day will also include free educational presentations covering many aspects of gardening.

“As always, Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer any questions and offer expert advice,” Overton said.

Proceeds from the sale support scholarships for students in Hamilton County who are interested in horticulture-related careers, as well as numerous community activities supporting sound horticultural practices within the community. The sale also supports a small-grants program for local groups with qualified horticultural programs, like the Keep Noblesville Beautiful Arbor Day tree giveaway.

Established in 1983, the Hamilton County Master Gardener Association is a nonprofit organization that promotes the art, science and pleasure of gardening in cooperation with the Purdue Extension Service of Hamilton County. For more information, visit www.hcmga.org.
