Volunteers grew more than 1,251 plants for the spring sale. 


Hundreds of Cowetans crowded the Coweta County Fairgrounds Saturday to choose the next contents for their gardens.

From 8:30 a.m. to 1 p.m., the Coweta County Master Gardener Extension Volunteers held their semi-annual plant sale at the agricultural building. For the plant sale, nearly 40 volunteers grew more than 1250 plants, including vegetables, herbs, shrubs and flowers. The money raised in the sale all went to local 4-H programs, scholarships and other educational programs.

In addition to purchasing the plants, aspiring gardeners got information on the type of turf and soil they need for their new plants to thrive. Some stoneware and garden decorations were also available for purchase.

Every volunteer at the sale completed a 10-week course through the University of Georgia Extension, said Lana Jones, program assistant with the extension service. The master gardeners will also have a plant sale in the fall, and for that, volunteers will try to save any perennials left over from Saturday, Jones said.

Anyone with questions about the Master Gardener program or questions about plants may call 770-254-2620 — the agent in charge is Stephanie Butcher, Jones said.
