After a long, hot summer Refugio County gardeners won’t want to miss the 2009 Victoria County Master Gardener Association’s (VCMGA) fall plant sale Saturday, Sept. 12, featuring a wide variety of plants, including some unique selections.

The sale will be held at Victoria County 4-H Activity Center, 259 Bachelor Dr., near Victoria Regional Airport terminal off Highway 59 North, from 8 a.m.-2 p.m., or whenever all plants are sold, whichever comes first.

Among the speciality plants offered this fall will be a hummingbird favorite, the Erythrina, or “Fireman’s Cap.” With red blooms shaped like its common name indicates, the Fireman’s Cap can grow into a showpiece shrub of up to 10 feet tall. Along with plants not often found in area nurseries the sale will feature a quality inventory of traditional favorites.

Proceeds from the sale go to improvements at Victoria Educational Gardens (VEG) including the construction of the new Master Gardener Pavilion. VCMGA membership is composed of gardeners from Victoria and its surrounding counties. The Master Gardeners are trained volunteers of Texas AgriLife Extension Service.
