The Fort Bend County Master Gardeners are holding their annual Fall Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale on Saturday, October 12, 2019, from 9:00 a.m. until noon. The sale will be held in the Bud O’Shieles Community Center located at 1330 Band Road, Rosenberg, TX 77471.
The varieties of plants offered for sale have been recommended for Fort Bend County by the Texas A&M AgriLife Extension Service and are grown by the Fort Bend County Master Gardeners.
The cooler temperatures of fall provide a great opportunity to grow vegetables in Fort Bend County. Many varieties thrive during our fall season and several will continue to produce until early spring, weather permitting! Some of the vegetable 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. Herbs brighten up many recipes and also make wonderful landscape plants since many of them are perennial. Chamomile, cilantro, dill, parsley, sage, salad burnet and thyme are some of the herbs that will be available.
All proceeds from the sales are used to support the educational programs offered throughout the year. This sale, along with the Fruit & Citrus Tree Sale and Spring Vegetable-Herb Plant Sale, help us purchase materials for our training and educational efforts, demonstration garden plants, and materials. No funds are used to pay volunteers nor are these funds used for anything unrelated to our mission.
