2022 Benton County Master Gardener Plant Sale

Our annual Plant Sale & Clinic is back! In 2022 we’ll have over 10,000 plants for your browsing on May 7, 9am-3pm, at the Benton Fairgrounds.  Knowledgeable Master Gardeners can help you find the right plant for your needs.  The Clinic is staffed by MGs to answer your gardening questions. 

Master Gardener programs are entirely self-supporting. Income from the sale funds all our school- and community-based education programs to grow better gardeners in Benton County. We appreciate your supporting us.

New this year, to make shopping easier and safer, we are filling two venues with plants for you. While the Solar Barn will hold the native and landscape plants, you’ll find the edibles in the Floral Courtyard.

The greenhouse crew has thousands of vegetable and herb starts seeded and growing fast, featuring stellar varieties tested in our own gardens. You’ll find 20 tomato varieties and 13 different peppers in addition to other vegetables and various herbs, fig trees, grapes, and more!

And thanks to your strong interest in the past, we’re growing more native plants than ever. More than 60 varieties of native trees, shrubs, perennials, and annual flowers will feed the pollinators in your garden. And remember, if you love butterflies and baby birds, you’ve got to grow caterpillars, and we’ve got native plants to feed them.

Landscape plants prepared over the past year are welcoming spring and growing fast. You’ll find perennial bloomers, trees and shrubs, easy care groundcovers, deer- and drought-resistant plants, all to make your garden glow.

Two buildings will help spread out the usual crowd of eager shoppers. We will also monitor the numbers to ease congestion, which may result in some waiting during the first hour or so before entry.  If you are covid-concerned, we encourage wearing a mask or coming after 10:00, when the first wave of shoppers thins out. We will still have lots of plants.

If schedules change, information will be updated on this site. Stay tuned. Looking forward to seeing you!
