University of Illinois Lake County Extension Master Gardeners Plant Sale

Calling all gardeners! Mark your calendars for Saturday, May 18, 2019, for the Lake County Extension Master Gardeners Spring Plant Sale at the University of Illinois Extension, 100 South U.S. Highway 45, in Grayslake, IL.

At our plant sale, held from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., you will see plants from our Master Gardeners’ home gardens, including unique plants and superior quality perennials from our Extension Office Demonstration Gardens. In total, more than 2,000 plants will be available for purchase, including native plants that attract and support pollinators, house plants, and home-grown herbs and vegetables. With countless tomato seedlings grouped into saucing, cherry and slicing varieties, you will find numerous options for an amazing crop this summer. Whether you are looking for Romas, Super Sweet 100s or Beefsteaks, we have an enticing array of plants from which to choose.

If you enjoy growing your own food, our seedlings will jump-start your lush, edible garden. From ground covers to shrubs and from shade to sun-lovers, these plants are acclimated to our local climate and growing conditions. To help new plants thrive in your landscape, Organimix® brand compost is available for sale while supplies last. In addition to plants, shop our “Garden Treasures” for new and gently used items to enhance your landscape and home, including yard art, garden tools, vintage finds, decorative containers and gardening books.

For your convenience, there are multiple check-out lanes (and, yes, we can accept credit card payments!), plentiful parking and assistance with plant selection or gardening questions from Extension Master Gardeners on site.
