Over 3300 plants homegrown by our Master Gardeners will be available for sale. Rutgers 250 and Ramapo tomato seeds will be available for those that wish to direct seed their garden. Home gardeners attending this year’s program can increase their gardening know how through a variety of lectures, demonstrations and displays. Education tables will include composting (by ACUA Master Composters); the advantages of Native plants; 4H group displays; and “Ask a Master Gardener” for all your general gardening questions. The Master Gardeners will also accept soil samples for pH testing. Each test is $2. Lectures include: 9:15 AM “Growing Peonies”; 10:00 AM “How to Create a Pollinator Garden”; 11:00 AM “Everything Monarchs”; 12:00 PM “Landscaping with Native Plants and Shrubs”; 1:00 PM “Veggie Gardening: Easy Pea-sy”; and 2:00 PM “Container Gardening With Annuals.” All lectures are free and do not require preregistration. This is a great event for residents who not only want plants to start or improve their garden but also the guidance to do it well. All sale proceeds go toward continued support of Rutgers Master Gardeners of Atlantic County community outreach projects. This includes upkeep of a public demonstration/learning garden, library gardens, school gardens, non-profit garden assistance and free educational programming around the county for adults and youth.
