The annual Master Gardener Plant Sale is becoming a Parker County tradition. It will be held Saturday, April 11 at the extension office in Weatherford, 604 N. Main from 8 a.m. to noon – rain or shine, but the line forms early as many plants are snapped up quickly.
Every spring, the group gathers a list of plants that are proven winners for the area. Two areas in particular include drought-tolerant plants and plants that will be used for butterfly gardens, especially those that will provide a way station for migrating Monarchs.
Some of the plants come from local nurseries, but many are grown by Master Gardeners in gardens in Parker County.

Each year the quantity of plants offered is increased to meet the growing demand. Shoppers are encouraged to bring their own wagons or trolleys to do some serious shopping.
Master Gardeners will also have demonstration booths set up featuring honey bees and other pollinators, butterfly and container gardening, water conservation and gardening with drought tolerant plants.
Proceeds from this annual sale go toward providing horticultural education to the citizens of Parker County and promoting sound horticultural practices in everyday gardening.
Master Gardeners are volunteers for AgriLife Extension who have completed at least 50 hours of horticulture training and served a full year of internship with the local Extension office.
