The 28th annual University of Maine Cooperative Extension Master Gardener Plant Sale is scheduled for 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 27.

The event will be held at the UMaine Gardens at Tidewater Farm at 75 Clearwater Drive, Suite 104, in Falmouth.

UMaine Extension master gardener volunteers will assist in selecting plants that best meet individual needs and to answer questions on how to care for them. Selections include native and pollinator plants, organic vegetable and herb seedlings, perennials, shrubs and annuals, according to a news release from Pamela Hargest at the Falmouth extension.

Gently used gardening items, tickets to enter the annual Master Gardener Calendar Raffle and bags of local compost will also be available for purchase.

There will be vermiculture and peat-free alternative demonstrations, as well as a tour of the gardens at Tidewater Farm.

Proceeds from the plant sale and calendar raffle support the group’s Seed Grant program for community projects, which rely on master gardeners’ expertise and volunteer time. These projects are found in communities across Cumberland County and include large undertakings such as demonstration gardens, Maine Harvest for Hunger initiatives, therapeutic gardens, school gardens and youth programs.

For more information or to request a reasonable accommodation, visit or contact Hargest at or 207-781-6099.
