Lincoln County Master Gardeners will hold their 20th annual Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, May 18th, 2019 from 9am-2pm. The event will be held at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds located at 633 NE 3rd St in Newport, OR.
The Lincoln County Master Gardeners sell plants each spring to help fund the ongoing operations of the Lincoln County Master Gardener Association. The sale started out modestly with just a few tables. Now there are 5 sections: Herbs, natives, ornamentals, vegetables and tomatoes. This year there will be between 4,000 and 5,000 plants- 800 of them tomato varieties. All are plants that can be successfully grown in our coastal climate.
In addition to a bountiful selection of plants there will be a garage sale of slightly used gardening items, tools, and books as wells as educational booths. The topics for the manned educational booths consist of food and nutrition, composting, worm farming, straw bale gardening, adaptive gardening, and heathers. You can even bring a small sample (small Ziploc baggie) of soil to test its pH.
If you are looking to spruce up your yard or start a vegetable garden you can purchase the starts you need and get tips from the experts while you’re at it.
