The Master Gardener Volunteers have been busy the past few months potting up and tending plants for their annual plant sale.  The tally of plants this year is over 2,100.  They will be selling perennials, annuals, vines, shrubs, trees, vegetables, herbs, and groundcovers.  Additionally, they will  be selling garden gloves.  There will also be a raffle with several baskets full of gardening related items for you to win.

A Plant Swap held separately from the sale is a chance for you and your neighbors to bring out items you would like to trade for someone else's garden excesses.  In the past, people have brought out plants, garden books, flower pots, garden tools, garden art, etc.  As a side note, if you do bring a plant try to have it's name and maybe a brief description on its care.

This is the major fundraiser for the Pitt County Arboretum.  All money collected is used to 'grow'  the Arboretum.
