Master Gardeners prepare for plant sale

Twenty-five Fayette County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers took a one-day propagation class recently at the State Botanical Garden in Athens. Conservation Horticulturist Heather Alley (center) talked about collecting tips, breaking dormancy (changes in temperature, water and light), grow buckets, grow lights, growing media and the many published and online resources available. The master gardeners are sowing and propagating plants that will be sold at their annual Plant Sale on Saturday, May 4, from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Fayette County Stonewall Government Complex.

The annual Garden Tour is on the same date, from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. For more information about the Master Gardener program, which is under the leadership of the University of Georgia, please contact the Extension Office at 770-305-5153. Photo/Special.
