Orders for fruit and vegetable plants are being taken now through the Haywood County Master Gardener Association, with a March 23 deadline for prepaid orders.
“The goal is to make selected fruits and vegetables available to gardeners in our area at a reasonable price,” said Elizabeth Allen, coordinator of the sale. “All the plants we offer should do well in Western North Carolina and will add edibles to your landscape.”
Plants will be available for pickup from 1 to 6 p.m., April 14, at the N.C.
Fruit bearing trees being offered for the first time are White Mulberry and Paw Paws.
Also available are American hazelnut, Shadbush serviceberry, Black elderberry plus strawberries, raspberries, blueberries and asparagus.
Proceeds from the plant sale contribute to the Haywood County Master Gardener Association grant program, which makes funds available for Haywood County horticultural projects and scholarships for schools and horticultural students from Haywood County.
