The only cure for spring fever is the Plant Sale!

The Outagamie County Master Gardener Association (OCMGA) is in the thick of planning for their annual plant sale. This is THEE largest fundraiser for the non profit organization and always has an amazing community turnout. The sale takes place on May 16th from 8 am to 2 pm, it is held at the Outagamie County UW Extension Office which is located at 3365 W. Brewster Street, Appleton, Wisconsin 54914.

Many many hours of volunteer time, brain power and muscle go into the planning of the sale. Not only do the Master Gardeners organize the logistics of the sale, they often grow, dig, split and pot plants for the sale. One member in particular has 25 different varieties of tomatoes growing in his basement!

Some of the plants are grown by Master Gardeners but many are also ordered from area greenhouses which offers a huge variety to those who come shopping for their gardens. The sale also includes a “Garden Rummage” where you can purchase second hand gardening supplies for whatever project or patio awaits you.

Keep an eye on the blog for a list of the veggies, herbs, sunny and shady plants the OCMGA hopes to have at the sale. Availability is dependent upon crop availability but we’ll be able to share the wish list soon. Hopefully you can start your wish list too!

If you have any questions please comment on this post and we can address it either here or through an email or phone call to you!
