It’s time to get those plants into the ground, and two sales by Davie non-profits are in the works.

First will be the Deep Roots Community Garden sale, scheduled for Saturday, April 29 from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. at 196 Wandering Lane in Mocksville.

On the next Thursday and Friday, May 4-5, the annual Davie County Master Gardeners Plant Sale will be held at the Masonic Picnic Grounds, off North Main Street behind the Brock center in Mocksville.

On Thursday, May 4  the sale is from 4-7 p.m. and on Friday, May 5 it is from 8 a.m.-1 pm.

The proceeds of the plant sale go to provide a scholarship for a Davie County high school student and to support community projects.

The Master Gardeners will have a wide selection of plants at the sale: perennials, shrubs, annuals, trees, heirloom plants, herbs, and vegetable plants. Native plants and many pollinator plants will be available, also. Along with plants, an assortment of yard art and garden accessories will be for sale.

In addition, the Davie Master Gardeners will raffle off garden items handmade by Master Gardener Terry Thornett. This year the items are two garden benches. The benches are made of pressure treated wood and are 6 feet long, 15 inches deep, and 18 inches tall. Each bench will be raffled off separately.

Cash and checks will be accepted. Come early for the best selection of plants. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and help with plant selection.
