Cornell Cooperative Extension of Putnam is pleased to announce the 2022 Master Gardener Volunteer May Plant Sale, Putnam County Veterans Memorial Park, 201 Gipsy Trail Road, Carmel, NY.

Our Largest Selection Ever!

The plant sale will feature a huge selection of heirloom and hybrid vegetable plants picked by Master Gardeners for Putnam County gardens. Carefully chosen tomatoes, peppers, eggplants, and other popular vegetable seedlings will be available singly or in multi-packs to allow gardeners try several different varieties. The sale will also include garden favorites such as colorful annuals, perennials, native pollinator plants and herbs. Beautiful pre-planted container gardens, hanging baskets and gardening gifts will be available for that perfect Mother’s Day present. The proceeds from this charity event fund numerous CCE-Putnam programs.

Make-and-Take crafts for Kids

In addition to plants, this year’s sale will include a variety of hands-on 4-H activities for children, including face painting/tattoos, creepy critters, and several Mother’s Day Make & Take crafts from 9:30 – 12:30 organized by Putnam County 4-H youth and volunteers.

Free Soil Tests and Gardening Advice

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.
