13th annual Denver Master Gardener Plant Sale expands inventory

Colorado State University Denver Extension will host the 13th annual Master Gardener Plant Sale at Denver’s Harvard Gulch Park, 888 E. Iliff Ave., Denver, on Saturday, May 19 (8 a.m.-3 p.m.), and Sunday, May 20 (10 a.m.-3 p.m.). The sale includes tomatoes, flowers, chiles, herbs and vegetables grown from seed by CSU Extension Master Gardener volunteers.

“The Denver Master Gardener CSU Extension Plant Sale is not to be missed if you are interested in gardening. We have everything you need, from flowers to vegetables to perennials, that thrive in our crazy Colorado climate,” said CSU Denver Extension horticulture agent Dan Goldhamer.

Plants are available while supplies last. Gently used gardening containers, tool  and books will also be on sale. Proceeds support the CSU Denver Extension programs, including youth development, nutrition education, and Master Gardener training.

Master Gardener volunteers will be available on-site to assist customers with plant selection and answer gardening questions.

“I really like to teach people how to propagate properly and get seeds to germinate,” said Renata Hahn, who’s been involved with the CSU Master Gardener program for more than 14 years. “I love being a Master Gardener!”

CSU will host a hospitality booth with refreshments. Attendees will have the chance to win door prizes, including CSU Athletics tickets, regardless of whether they purchase anything at the sale. CSU cheerleaders will also be available for photos. Attendees wearing CSU gear will receive $5 off their purchase.
