The St. Croix Valley Master Gardeners Association will hold its annual plant sale on Saturday, June 3rd, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the lawn of the Octagon House Museum at 1004 Third Street, Hudson.
Come early for the best selection of perennial and annual plants from the gardens of local master gardeners. Vegetable seedlings will be available including a selection of tomatoes and herbs. Ask a master gardener a question—gardening advice is given freely.
The Master Gardeners is an association of horticulture enthusiasts who have completed a Master Gardening course offered by the University of Wisconsin Extension Program. Their monthly meetings feature guest speakers on a variety of gardening topics. Members volunteer to care for gardens at nursing homes, schools, parks and public buildings.
The proceeds from the plant sale are used to provide several grants for horticulture projects and garden beautification and development projects within Pierce and St. Croix Counties. For more information about the Master Gardeners Association visit their website at http://scvmga.weebly.com.
Starting in June the Octagon House Museum will open for walk-in tours Wednesdays through Sundays from noon to 4 p.m. and open early on Saturdays at 10 a.m. The Museum Gift Shop is open to the public during regular tour hours. The Gift Shop will be open during the plant sale and is stocked with a variety of garden, home and Victorian inspired gifts.
