A new plant sale corner is featured in the covered area of the butterfly garden! This corner advertises plants from the Arboretum gardens and from the personal gardens of our Master Gardener volunteers. Each plant comes with a label detailing the plant name and qualities, along with a QR code. The QR code leads to the Extension Gardener Plant Toolbox website for that specific plant.
The Extension Gardener Plant Toolbox is a valuable tool for both Extension agents and the curious public. This website offers research based information on a variety of plants that can be grown in any North Carolina garden. Pay particular attention to details such as lifecycle, light conditions, and maintenance level.
The plant sale accepts donations in a black donation box located next to the sale corner. Each plant has a suggested donation located on the label. Donations collected go towards supporting the Master Gardener program and their continued work in the Arboretum. Interested in getting more involved with the Arboretum and Master Gardener program?
