Master Gardener conference and plant sale set April 21
Special to The Monitor
ATHENS–A memorable speaker, a grand dinner and a spectacular plant sale is planned.
The Henderson County Master Gardeners 11th annual Plant Sale and Conference is scheduled for Thursday, April 21, at the United Methodist Church in Athens.
Doors will open for the plant sale at 5 p.m. This year’s event will offer more than a touch of nature and is shaping up to be the best ever.
Everyone comes for the plants. Each year the Master Gardeners plant, proprogate and contribute rare and unusual plants grown in their gardens to the sale.
In addition, this year, a number of plants come from two successful nurseries Greg Grants’ Plants and King’s Nursery. Greg Grant is the featured speaker for the evening.
Among the plants for sale will be Greg’s VIP petunias, perennial verbena, “Rosie”, named for a beloved pet, “Buttercream Lantana,” a cream and white sport that stays low to the ground, Country Girl chrysanthemum “Mildred Golden,” his ever popular “Princess” verbena, summer phlox “John Fannick,” salvia “Henry Duelberg,” “Big Mama” and “Pam’s Pink” Turks cap.
Grant, a nationally known horticulturist, naturalist and garden writer from Stephen F. Austin University, has spent years developing improved selections of native plants, and introducing Texas hardy annuals and perennials to the Texas Nursery industry.
His presentation will be titled “Heirloom plants for the south,” and the new edition of the book with that title, coauthored with Dr William Welch, will be available at the conference.
Your purchase of a $20 ticket admits you to the plant sale, a grand dinner prepared by Chef Jackson York, Texas 2010 Chef of the Year, followed by Grant’s presentation.
The evening also features a silent auction, a live auction and a raffle.
You’ll have the opportunity to bid for, among other things, a butterfly garden created just for you, in your own yard, garden soil donated by King’s Sand and Gravel, or a weekend stay at a guest cottage on the lake.
For sure, you will leave the conference with more than a touch of nature.
Tickets are available from the Texas Agricultural Extension Office or from a Master Gardener.
For more information call (903) 675-6130 or Henderson-co-tx-mg.org.
