Plant sale- What are your choices?

yomamanem(7B Georgia)February 17, 2008

Well, it's getting time to start potting up plants for our annual Master Gardener plant sale. We were not sure if it would be such a good idea to have it with our current drought; however, we have decided to emphasize drought tolerant plants. For you experienced gardeners: What are some of your toughest plants that you would recommend to those brave souls who want to keep trying? I have quite a few tried and true things that I am going to propagate and divide.

Our plant sale is always the Saturday before Monhers Day in Carrollton at the Agriculture Center. It is a big event. Like I said, it may be different this time because of the drought.

Anything edible, because those plants can still be watered.

We usually have herbs, tomatoes, peppers, etc. It just depends on what Master Gardeners bring to sell.
