AMES, Iowa – As Iowans make gardening plans for the year, the annual plant sales from local county Master Gardeners are a great way to get ready and find new plants. Plant sales are happening in many Iowa counties in the coming weeks, featuring a wide range of flowers and vegetables.
Plants for the sales come from Iowa Master Gardeners’ own home gardens. Master Gardeners staffing the sales are also an excellent resource to ask questions about gardening and to help choose appropriate plants.
