Saturday: Master Gardeners hold plant sale

The UCCE Master Gardeners of San Mateo and San Francisco Counties will be selling tomato and pepper seedlings at their plant sale this Saturday, April 10, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the College of San Mateo Greenhouse.

Get your veggie garden off to a great start with seedlings selected especially for local success. Choose from popular and unusual varieties of tomatoes, sweet and hot peppers, and more --including varieties that do well in cool and foggy areas.

Volunteer master gardeners will be on hand to provide growing tips and answer your gardening and pest questions. Sales will be cash or check only.

CSM is at 1700 West Hillsdale Blvd. in San Mateo; park (free) in Galileo Lot 6 or Bulldog Lot 9.

Proceeds from the sale will benefit the Master Gardeners of San Mateo & San Francisco Counties, providing free garden and pest information to home gardeners, promoting sustainable gardening and a healthy environment. The plant sale is co-sponsored by the College of San Mateo.
