Cornell Cooperative Extension–Putnam will host its annual Master Gardener Plant Sale on May 7, 2022, from 8:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., at Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park in Carmel.

The plant sale will feature a broad selection of heirloom and hybrid vegetable plants picked by Master Gardeners for Putnam County gardens. Tomatoes, peppers, eggplants and other popular vegetable seedlings will be available singly or in multipacks to allow gardeners to try several different varieties. The sale will also include garden favorites such as colorful annuals, perennials, native pollinator plants and herbs. Pre-planted container gardens, hanging baskets and gardening gifts will also be available for purchase. The proceeds from this charity event fund numerous CCE-Putnam programs.

In addition to plants, this year’s sale will include a variety of hands-on 4-H activities for children—including face painting and tattoos, creepy critters and several Mother’s Day Make & Take crafts—from 9:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., organized by Putnam County 4-H youth and volunteers.
Cornell-trained Master Gardener volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about planting, nurturing and harvesting to help Putnam gardeners prepare for a successful growing season.
 Soil testing will again be offered this year, so interested gardeners are encouraged to bring samples of their garden soil. The event will be held rain or shine in a covered pavilion.

Location: Putnam Veterans Memorial Park, 201 Gipsy Trail Rd., Carmel, NY. For more information, call 845.278.6738 ext. 216 or email
