Fall is the best time to plant perennials, trees and shrubs! The Master Gardener Program holds its 7th Annual Plant Sale, a fundraiser for the program, and part of the Learning in the Garden series.
The Plant Sale will offer an array of plants from the Xeriscape Garden itself, plus perennials, shrubs, trees and even houseplants grown by the Master Gardeners! Fresh bundles of culinary herbs grown in the garden will also be available for purchase.
The Master Gardeners will also be giving away free milkweed pods to shoppers, while supplies last!

The “Learning in the Garden" series is appropriate for gardeners of any level. Classes take place at the Master Gardeners Program’s award-winning Xeriscape garden at SUNY Ulster (491 Cottekill Road in Stone Ridge) on the 3rd Saturday of each month, June through October.
Classes start at 10 am, rain or shine, and last about a half hour (except for the Plant Sale, which runs from 10 am – 12 pm).
