Thank you to all who came out for the Plant Sale.  All proceeds are used to enhance the Arboretum and fund our public outreach programs.  It was a hot, sunny day and the plants moved fast.  Next year's sale is already on the calendar:  The Saturday after Mother's Day.

If you have questions about the plants you just purchased, call the Master Gardener Hotline 252-902-1705.  On Monday, Tuesday, and Thursday someone will be there to answer the call from 10:00 AM to Noon.  At other times, leave a message and they will return your call when they are back in the office.  You also can email a question to

Remember to keep your new plants watered until they are established (even if they are labeled drought tolerant).
