Fall Online Plant Sale Planned

August 9, 2022

Dear fellow Gardeners,

We are eager to tell you about our work preparing for the Fall Online Plant Sale in September. Presently, the plan is to have approximately 900 plants available for purchase. For those of you who have shopped our Online Plant Sales before, this will be familiar to you – with only date changes. For our Online Plant Sale newbies, here’s how it works.

First, visit the website www.bcmgva.org from Thursday, Sept. 1, through Thursday, Sept. 8, (or until plants sell out) to place and pay for your order. You will be able to pay using PayPal, Visa, Master Card, American Express, or Discover. Second, mark your calendar to pick up your plants in person on Thursday, Sept. 15, from 9 a.m. until noon at the Brunswick County Extension Office, 25 Referendum Drive, greenhouse area behind Building N, Government Complex, Bolivia. Master Gardener volunteers will gather your purchased plants for you to see and then load them into the vehicle for you.

We are also excited to tell you that we are expecting to have at least four vendors with us during our Plant Sale pick up! You can bring your pruners and gardening implements to have them sharpened by Bertrand’s Mobile Sharpening Service and enjoy some more plant buying with folks from Going Native Gardens and Ed’s Plants. Richard Jones will also be with us selling carnivorous plants.

Plants available will include the following (but please know that nurseries sometimes have availability issues – for which we are sorry when it happens):
