Master Gardeners offer variety of plants in weekend sale

EDITOR’S NOTE: This has been corrected. The plant sale is at the Master Gardener Demonstration Garden in Seqim. The original version erroneously said the sale was also in Port Angeles.

A broad selection of perennial shrubs, ground covers, flowering perennials, vegetable starts, herbs, ornamental grasses and native trees and shrubs will be on sale at two locations this weekend.

The sales at the garden at 2711 Woodcock Road in Sequim will be from 9 a.m. to noon Saturday and from 10 a.m. to noon Sunday. All remaining plants will be half-price Sunday.

All plants have been cultivated locally so prospective buyers can know that they are well-suited for local gardens, said Betsy Burlingame, plant sale chair.

Master Gardeners, who have pruned and potted the plants, will be on hand at the sale to help gardeners select plants for the growing conditions of their properties and to answer questions.

Perennials include pulmonaria lungwort, day and oriental lilies, iris, leopard’s bane and columbine. Ground covers include ornamental strawberries, ajuga, sweet woodruff, thrift, saxifrages and sedum.

Rhubarb, chives, oregano, rosemary, Sweet Sicily and chives also will be readily available.

There will be a limited supply of red osier dogwood, California allspice, black current and exotic bromeliads.

Burlingame also said a large collection of used garden art, tools, books and other items will be for sale.

The annual plant sales are sponsored by the Master Gardener Foundation of Clallam County.

Proceeds help maintain local demonstration gardens on Woodcock Road, west of Sequim, and Fifth Street in Port Angeles, and gardening education programs throughout Clallam County.

For more information, contact 360-565-2679.
