Fall Vegetable/Herb Sale
October 12 @ 9:00 am - 12:00 pm
The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners are holding their annual fall Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale on Saturday, Oct. 12, from 9 a.m. to noon. The sale will be held in the Bud O’Shieles Community Center, 1303 Band Rd in Rosenberg, TX.
After the heat of summer, the cooler temperature of fall is a great time to grow vegetables and herbs in Fort Bend County. There are many varieties of vegetables and herbs that thrive in our cooler fall weather and many will continue to produce until early spring if temperatures do not drop below freezing for an extended period.
The varieties of vegetable and herb plants selected are recommended for Fort Bend County by Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service or grown by Master Gardeners in their own home gardens. The vegetable and herb plants offered in the sale have been grown by Fort Bend Master Gardeners in their greenhouse.
Some of the plants that will be available include broccoli, Brussels sprouts, cabbage, kale, kohlrabi, celery, Swiss chard, cauliﬂower, lettuce, mustard greens, collards, and pak choi.
Fall is also a good time to add herbs to your garden, chamomile, cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, salad burnet and thyme are some of the herbs that will be available.
While herbs are a great addition to many recipes they also are wonderful plants to add to the landscape since many herbs are perennial.
All proceeds from the sales are used to support the educational programs offered to the public throughout the year. This sale, along with the Fruit & Citrus Tree Sale and Spring Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale, help the Master Gardeners organization purchase materials for training and educational program and the demonstration gardens. No funds are used to pay volunteers nor are these funds used for anything unrelated to the Master Gardeners’ mission. Fort Bend County Master Gardeners are one of the volunteer groups of the Fort Bend County Ofﬁce of the Texas A&M Agri-Life Extension Service.
