“I’m bringing a boatload of plants, I hope someone will want to buy them!” said Master Gardener, Barbara Bravo.  The Master Gardener Program of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Ulster County (CCEUC) will be hosting their 3rd Annual Plant Sale this Saturday, September 19 from 9am-noon at their Xeriscape Garden, located on the SUNY Ulster campus at 491 Cottekill Road in Stone Ridge.

The Plant Sale will offer an array of plants from the Xeriscape Garden itself, plus perennials, shrubs, trees and even houseplants grown by the Master Gardeners!  Proceeds benefit the CCEUC Master Gardener program.  Cash, check or credit cards (Visa or MasterCard) will be accepted at the sale, which will be held rain or shine.  For more information, contact Dona Crawford at 845-340-3990 ext. 335 or email dm282@cornell.edu.

Also, at 10:00 am, join us for a free workshop to review and discuss how the Alpine Garden has changed this year.  This is one of many classes in the “Learning in the Garden” workshop series, held every third Saturday at the Xeriscape Garden, June through October.  Join us for the last workshop in the series on October 17 “Fall Planted Bulbs” to learn about planting bulbs in the fall for enjoyment in the spring!

The Xeriscape Garden is an interactive teaching tool in the selection of heat-tolerant waterwise plants, integrated pest management and alternative landscaping techniques.  Group and one-on-one free tours are also offered at the garden throughout the year.
