Attendees should print the list and bring it with them if possible as a limited number of copies of the final list will be available at the check-in table.
“The sale is an indoor event so regardless of what the weather decides to do, attendees can shop in heated- or air-conditioned comfort.”
Whitney said shoppers should come early for the best selection as many plant varieties will sell out early.
There will also be a Texas Master Gardeners Help Desk to assist with gardening- and horticulture-related questions. Master Gardeners and Whitney will be available for advice and recommendations.
