Macoupin County Master Gardeners to Host One Day Only Plant Sale

The Macoupin County Master Gardeners along with University of Illinois Extension Unit 18 will host a plant sale on Saturday, May 28, from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. at the Macoupin County Historical Society Spring Festival, 920 W. Breckenridge, Carlinville, IL. The plant sale will take place on the east side of the grounds, next to the Windmill and Red Barn. Profits from the sale will be used for landscaping on the Macoupin County Courthouse grounds.


All plants will be $6 or less and sold on a cash and carry basis. Come and shop for perennials, annuals (limited supply), native plants, and more while supporting the programs of the Macoupin County Master Gardeners. There are many top quality, locally raised plants to choose from. Master Gardener volunteers will help you select the best plants for your garden conditions and will also have a free information booth to help answer any gardening questions you may have.


Everyone is encouraged to come early as many selections run out quickly. For more information contact the Macoupin County Extension office at 217-854-9604.
