The Extension Master GardenerSM Volunteer Association of Brunswick County will hold our 2024 Spring Plant Sale on Friday, May 3 from 9am to noon (or sell out) at the Botanical Garden greenhouse area located behind Building N at 25 Referendum Drive in Bolivia. The sale will feature an assortment of blooming shrubs, perennials and annuals that thrive in North Carolina’s coastal climate. Names of the plants with photos of some NEW offerings will be posted in the coming months.

While at the sale, please allow time to visit the Botanical Demonstration Garden just across the road where we will have docents available to answer your questions. Throughout the gardens you will see name tags with botanical and common names of the various specimens. These tags also contain QR codes that link to the Plant Toolbox maintained by NC State University. Just hold your phone’s camera over the code and a link to the plant’s description should pop up.

We are looking forward to a wonderful spring in Brunswick County and a fantastic Spring Plant Sale!

Soil Testing Info

The best first step toward having a beautiful garden and landscape is having your soil tested every couple of years. Homeowner/Residential Soil Kits are available for pick up on a table in front of the Extension Office doorways. Each soil test kit gives you three boxes for testing different areas of your yard and then you deliver them back, so we can send them to the labs at NC State University. Your info is returned directly to you by email. Instead of picking up and delivering your soil tests back to the Extension office, you may pick up AND drop off soil kits and testing boxes at the following locations throughout Brunswick County: Ace Hardware in Southport, Scott’s Farm/Jack’s Farm Center as well as Green Resource in Shallotte, Heritage Fresh Market (off Route 17) in Supply, Ace Hardware in Calabash, and Ace Hardware and Shelton Herb Farm in Leland.

We hope to see you at our plant sales this year. Always remember, the Extension Master Gardener volunteers greatly appreciate your support as we raise funds to support the Botanical Demonstration Gardens located beside the Extension offices, landscaping for Habitat for Humanity houses, and a wide variety of educational programming to help Brunswick County residents succeed in gardening in our coastal environment.
