Volusia County’s master gardeners have been sowing and growing all year to assemble plants ideal for Central Florida’s climate.

Locals can purchase these verdant treasures from 8:30 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 4, during the 22nd annual Master Gardener Plant Sale and Vendor Faire at the Volusia County Agricultural Center, 3100 E. New York Ave., DeLand.

Choose from a variety of butterfly and hummingbird plants, herbs and edibles, native plants, perennials, and trees. Plant and garden vendors also will be on site.

Purchases may be made with cash or check only. Admission and parking are free. Pets are not allowed, but service dogs will be admitted.

A sneak peek of the plants is 9 to 11 a.m. Friday, April 3, at the Agricultural Center. Plants will not be sold during the preview, but master gardeners will answer questions and discuss the landscape potential of the available plants.

Proceeds will support the county’s Master Gardener Program. Master gardeners receive horticultural training from the University of Florida/Volusia County Extension and volunteer their time to answer questions and teach residents about gardening and landscaping.
