Genesee County Master Gardeners to hold Fall Garden Gala Sept. 19

Press release:

Genesee County Master Gardeners will be hosting their annual Fall Garden Gala on Saturday, Sept. 19, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. at Cornell Cooperative Extension of Genesee County, 420 E. Main St. in Batavia.

There will be a plant sale featuring hardy perennials, houseplants and locally grown mums. Fall is a good time to plant many perennials as the plant will have the fall months to grow a strong root system. There will also be a chance basket auction, free soil pH testing and plenty of gardening advice from local master gardeners.

Stop by for “Flower Arrangements from the Garden” demonstration at 11 a.m. Learn how to artfully arrange fresh flowers from your garden. A variety of fresh flower arrangements created by master gardeners will also be available for sale.

Don’t miss your chance to pick up some great plants for your garden! Plant sale starts promptly at 10 a.m. No early birds please. The chance auction drawing will begin at 12:30 p.m.

For more information contact Brandie Schultz at CCE of Genesee County, (585) 343-3040, ext. 101, stop by the Extension office at 420 E. Main St. in Batavia, or visit our Web site http://genesee.cce.cornell.edu/gardening or Facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CCEofGenesee.
