Daffodils and tulips are blooming and gardeners are eagerly anticipating the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers’ Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, April 11.

“Everyone wants their yards to look beautiful in the spring, and our flowering plants will bring lots of color to your garden,” said Spring Plant Sale Assistant Chair Leigh Anne Harvey, who earned her Master Gardener designation in 2014. “And we will have plenty of tomatoes, peppers and herbs for people who like plants they can eat.”

The sale takes place from 8:30 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the Coweta County Fairgrounds Agriculture Building, 275 Pine Road, Newnan.

All plants for sale have been propagated or grown by the volunteers. “What’s become more popular each year are our tomatoes, peppers and herbs,” said Chairman Dave Granroos, a volunteer since 2008 and a plant sale veteran. “We will have several varieties of heirloom tomatoes as well as the popular hybrids. We will also feature plants that are just right for Georgia’s planting zones.”

A limited number of boxes will be available at the sale, but buyers are welcome to bring more of their own if they plan to load up with new plants.

The volunteers’ spring and fall plant sales support UGA Extension – Coweta County programs through community education, raising funds for scholarships and supporting 4-H.
