Bulbs sprouting in soil

Fall is a great time to plant many landscape plants. The soil is still warm, so root growth can occur, finally the temperatures have cooled making conditions less stressful for newly planted plants, and ideally, we will begin to receive some fall rains.

Fall is a busy time of year for the Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteers of Union County. They are busy in their own gardens as well as in the Teaching Garden at the Union County Ag Center and other community education programs.

The Extension Master Gardener volunteers of Union County will hold their annual Fall Bulb & Plant Sale on Saturday, October 12, 2019. The sale is from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. & will be held at the greenhouse at the Union County Agriculture Center. The sale will feature a variety of unique spring-flowering bulbs, fruit trees, blueberries, heirloom mums, perennials, and native plants. Rain barrels & composters will also be available. Funds raised from the plant sales are used to support Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteer community educational programs.

If you have questions about fall planting, ornamental plants, growing fruits, and vegetables, or insect, disease, or weed problems, stop by the Plant Sale & speak with an Extension Master Gardener℠ volunteer or you can call the Extension Master Gardener Growline at 704-283-3822.
