MARIPOSA — Local Master Gardeners are gearing up for their annual spring plant sale. Seeds are being selected and started, stem propagation is yielding results, and plans for garden art are being made.
The Mariposa Master Gardeners sale will be from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (or until sold out) at the Amigo Picnic Area at the Mariposa County Fairgrounds. The date is Saturday, Apr. 29. Please note: this is not the same day as the Butterfly Festival.
The sale will have tomato choices by the busload, plus a range of other vegetables, fruits and herbs from rutabagas to kohlrabi. There will be a special emphasis on native plants. More flowering plants are expected this year.
You’ll also be introduced to Hugelkultur, a German gardening method that helps conserve water and uses trunks and branches from dead trees.
