Do you want vegetable plants already started and garden-ready? Are you looking for a wide selection and expert buying advice? Are you looking to try something new and maybe a little exotic in your garden this year? Then do NOT miss the Second Annual Great Tomato Plant Sale on Saturday, April 6, 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. This will also be your opportunity to see the new Our Garden location at N. Wiget Lane and Shadelands Dr in Walnut Creek.
There will be thousands of heirloom tomato plants, representing more than 40 proven varieties, from Ace to Zebra. And if that is not enough to make you hunger for summer, we will also have several plant varieties of artichoke, eggplants, sweet and chili peppers, and tomatillos, all selected for their repeated success in Contra Costa home gardens. Tomato plants will cost $3 each (cash and check only) and the income will support the community education work of Contra Costa Master Gardeners. Come early, last year we sold out within the first 3 hours!
On the day of the event, Master Gardeners will be available to give advice on plant selection, site location and preparation, planting, fertilizing, pruning, and harvesting. Strategies to minimize plant disease and maximize production will also be discussed.
