Thousands of heirloom tomato and other vegetable plants will be on sale at the 7th Annual Great Tomato Plant Sale, Heirlooms of the World. Don't miss it! Here's what's in store...
What makes the Great Tomato Plant Sale so special?
We base our selections & recommendations on the local experience of UC Master Gardeners who field-test & grow these tomato varieties in their own Contra Costa gardens and at Our Garden, our Walnut Creek demo garden. Many varieties aren't available in local nurseries, but found only at our sales.
UC Master Gardeners will be available at the sale to advise on plant selection, site location and preparation, planting, fertilizing, pruning, and harvesting. Strategies to minimize plant disease and maximize production will also be discussed.
In 2018, we'll be selling dozens of varieties of heirloom tomato plants from many worldwide locations, along with lots of tough, high-performing hybrid tomato varieties by popular demand. In addition, we'll have numerous types of peppers, many unusual and hard-to find—from sweet and juicy to hot and spicy, as well as a wide variety of eggplants, tomatillos, herbs and other summer veggies.
All plants will be $3 each (CASH OR CHECK ONLY, please!). All income helps support the community education work of the UC Master Gardener Program of Contra Costa County.
