Page A-12 - Mason County Journal - Thursday, May 8, 2014 MASTER GARDENER Plant sale offers source for gems, fun Pring is the time for local garden- ing clubs, school groups, churches, and of course the Master Gardeners to have plant sales to fund their projects for the coming year. I've al- ready seen several plant sales advertised By JEANNE in Mason County, with REHWALDT many more to come. When perusing a plant sale's inventory, a cus- tomer needs to be very careful that the plant you are admiring is not a noxious weed. In the early days of the MG plant sale, we unwittingly of- fered several plants that turned out to be on the noxious weed list of inva- sive plants. Bronze fennel, poor man's orchid and butterfly bush are some examples. We are fortunate to have the Mason County Noxious Weed program lo- cated at the extension office. When the MG plant sale began, Mason County was one of only two counties in the state without a weed board. Pat Grover, coordina- tor for the program in Ma- son County, is also a Master Gardener and has been very helpful in pointing out plants that should not be for sale at our event and iden- tifying plants being offered at other plant sales around the county that are inva- sive. She will have a display and be available to answer questions during our plant sale Friday and Saturday at Kneeland park. WSU Extension is cel- ebrating its 100th anniver- sary this year, and the event in Mason County will be dur- ing the plant sale on Friday from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. All programs will be represented with displays and staff to answer questions and share what is happening around the county. Many people think of 4-H, but we also have Food Sense nutrition, Shore Stewards and water quality programs, and the Master Gardener program. Please stop by and enjoy a piece of cake and share how WSU Extension has affected your life. see GARDENER, page A-13 Sunday, May I1, 10:30 a.m.. - 1:00 p.m. 5%ee to Seniors 55+ A MAPLE GLEN senior living Celebrating The ART of LIFE Landscape Supplg Mother's Day Special Overflowing Hanging kets C 00nly s23 More than 300 to choose from 3 or more s22 each / Larger size s41 Extensive variety of over 700 plants for your landscape and garden needs!
