With the weather warming up, the Cumberland County Master Gardeners are in full swing, spring mode. The Annual Cumberland County Master Gardener Plant Sale will take place on Saturday, May 28 from 8 a.m.–noon at the UMaine Gardens at Tidewater Farm, located at Presumpscot Point Rd. in Falmouth. In addition to organic vegetable and herb seedlings and annuals and perennials, there will be an exemplary selection of Maine native plants and pollinator plants.
Master Gardeners will be on hand to assist and advise you on plant selections. Other fun items for sale will be gently used garden tools/supplies, bagged organic compost, baked goods, and calendar raffle tickets with each entry having 30 chances to win fabulous prices every day in June. In addition, there will be educational booths from vermiculture to peat free alternatives.
All of the proceeds from the plant sale go back into the Master Gardener Volunteers program to support educational and food security initiatives. So you will not only get great plants at a great price, with expert advise, but your purchase will help Master Gardener Volunteers achieve their mission goals and introduce new programs of support for Cumberland County residents.
So buy your plants from those who grow them and know them.
