Here are the sheets for plant orders and for plant information. We are taking orders now through March 21, 2018. Plants are on a one day pick up at Gwinnett County Fairgrounds on March 29, 2018. Make plans now to get your orders in early for some good values on plants that help support our programs and our 4-H youth.

This year at our Plant Sale Class, which will be held on March 19th,(see class description below) we not only will have Tim Daly from 6:00 to 7:00 talking about how to plant and care for the plants, but we have added Ines Beltran who will give a demonstration and handouts about preserving and canning your fruits and give out delicious recipes from 7:00 to 8:00pm.
