2018 Gwinnett Extension Plant Sale

It is time for our annual plant sale to begin taking orders. We have some fabulous plants waiting to be pre-ordered and paid for, and are having our "Middle of the Ring" sale again the day of plant pick up.

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, we not only will have Tim Daly 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. Reservations are required by March 16. You may also place orders for your plants at this class with exact money or check. To reserve your spot for the class, call Tim Daly at 678.377.4011.
