The Okaloosa County Master Gardener spring plant sale will help you bring bright colors to your garden following our cold winter. We will feature Mexican flame vines, giant tithonia sunflowers, Copper Canyon daisies, evergreen gloxinia, red and white salvia, and fire spike, just to name a few.
Many other plants will be available at the sale on Saturday, May 5, from 8 am to Noon at the Okaloosa Extension Annex located at 127 Hollywood Blvd NW in Fort Walton Beach. The sale is indoors and goes on rain or shine.
All plants (except large potted plants) are $5, or five plants for $20. All plants are labeled for sun or shade, and Master Gardeners will be on hand to help you select the best plant for your garden and to suggest companion plants.
In addition, Master Gardeners are available at the Fort Walton Beach annex to answer your questions every Friday morning (except holiday weekends). You may bring a sample leaf or stem of your plant, grass, or weed problems to be identified, as well as solutions and suggestions on best gardening practices.
