Local gardeners, take note. The Ozaukee Master Gardener Heirloom Plant and Herb Sale is 9 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 23, at Concordia University in Mequon, Wisconsin. More than 11,000 plants will be for sale. Just about every kind of herb you can think of (and plenty you didn’t know existed), plus heirloom tomato, peppers and eggplant will be for sale. There is also a garden merchandise area featuring all kinds of cool stuff: Atlas gardening gloves, a soil scoop, original artwork, great gardening books, tub trugs, plant labels, and lots more. Door prizes will be given out beginning at 8:30 a.m. and we have some great stuff to give out. Two Earthboxes, a Potlifter, Organic Gardening Magazine subscriptions, Bluestone Perennials gift certificates and more.
Come early. People start lining up more than an hour ahead of time for the best selection of herbs, and we’ll have free herbal tea to sip on while you wait. For more info go to Ozaukee Master Gardeners.
