The 11th annual Fort Bend County Master Gardeners’ Spring Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, March 9, 2019. The sale will feature spring vegetables: tomatoes, peppers, eggplant, Swiss chard, and tomatillos. Herbs offered will include basil, cilantro, chives, oregano, parsley, thyme, rosemary, and more. All plants are grown by the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners and are varieties recommended for Fort Bend County.
Our popular Seeds 4 Sale packets will be available again this year; each packet includes seeds of six vegetables to be started in the garden. Seeds 4 Sale packets help residents with small planting areas grow some of the vegetables that should be planted directly into the ground. The packets include seeds for green beans, cucumbers, okra and squash. Several of the varieties are bush type and can be grown in containers as well as in a small garden.
The sale is open from 9:00 a.m. until 12:00 noon in front of the Master Gardeners’ greenhouse which is located behind the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension office for Fort Bend County at 1402 Band Rd, Rosenberg, TX 77471.
