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.
