The annual Concho Valley Master Gardeners plant sale is set for April 10. The event will start at 8 a.m. at the Tom Green 4-H Center, 3168 N. U.S. Highway 67, San Angelo.
“The Master Gardeners are very pleased to be able to offer a plant sale this year after having to cancel last year’s sale due to COVID-19,” said Allison Watkins, Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service horticulture agent for Tom Green County and coordinator for the Concho Valley Master Gardener program.
Watkins said they will be following all recommended practices to make it a safe event for all.
“We know that many landscapes will need some refreshing this year, especially after the arctic freeze we experienced and several winter storms,” she said. “We have a wide selection of plants to choose from including vegetables, herbs, annual and perennial flowers, hanging baskets, succulents and more.”
Popular plants in demand
The event will close once they have sold out of plants. Only cash or checks will be accepted. The event is extremely popular and, after last event’s needing to be canceled, plants are expected to sell out quickly, so arriving as early as possible is recommended for the best selection.
“We know that gardening in West Texas has its own unique challenges, but good plant selection is the best place to start to be successful,” she said. “The Master Gardeners will be offering plants that can handle the conditions we experience here in the Concho Valley.”
She added that all plants are locally propagated and grown by the Concho Valley Master Gardeners.
Concho Valley Master Gardener is a non-profit organization affiliated with AgriLife Extension. Proceeds from the plant sale will benefit local educational efforts about landscaping, gardening and water conservation.
