2023 Benton County Master Gardener Plant Sale
Gardeners, Mark Your Calendars!
The Benton County Master Gardener Association Annual Plant Sale and Clinic is Saturday, May 6, at the Benton County Fairgrounds, 110 SW 53rd St, Corvallis. The sale is under cover at the Solar Barn and in the Floral Courtyard, so don’t let a little rain keep you away. Hours are 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. You’ll find nearly 10,000 plants at great prices. 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. You’ll find about 2000 pots of native plants for supporting wildlife and enhancing your garden. Special collections include deer resistant and drought tolerant plants. Locally sourcing your 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. This is the year to try some new varieties in your home garden.
Benton County Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer your gardening questions and help you find plants suited to your own growing needs. 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 informative lectures and demonstration gardens. These programs and more are self-supporting though efforts like the plant sale.
