Thomas Jefferson Gardens Plant Sale
Gardeners all! It’s time for the Thomas Jefferson Gardens of Greene County’s Annual Plant Sale the first week of May. Annuals, vegetables, and some perennials will be available.
Dates and times for the sale are Thursday, May 5 from 4 to 6 pm; Friday, May 6 from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday, May 7 from 9 am to 1 pm. The sale will take place at the gardens at 201 East Lincoln Way, Jefferson.
Many of the plants were started in the TJG greenhouse this year although the weather has been challenging.
The gardens will soon be awakening from winter “slumber” and bursting with bloom! In a convenient location on the square, it’s easy to get a “garden fix” at the Thomas Jefferson Gardens. Various features include a prairie garden, farmers’ garden, rose garden, children’s garden, and raised beds filled with unique annuals and herbs. Outdoor musical instruments are also a popular attraction, especially with children.
