Otsego Master Gardener Spring Plant Sale 2024

  • Saturday, May 25, 2024, 9:00 AM - 2:00 PM

The Otsego Master Gardener Volunteers will offer their annual Plant Sale again this year on Saturday, May 25, 2024, at the Education Center in Cooperstown. 

Rain or shine, the Otsego Master Gardener Volunteers (OMGV) of Cornell Cooperative Extension will hold their annual plant sale on Saturday, May 25, 2024, from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the Cornell Cooperative Extension Education Center, 123 Lake Street in Cooperstown.

“The selections at the OMGV Plant Sale were chosen with local gardeners in mind.” Explained MGV Kim L”Heureux. “We drew upon research from the Cornell Vegetable and Flower Trials, and the All-America Selections Trials (AAS) to grow a wide array of highly-rated plants that will be most successful in our area. Many are deer-resistant and/or disease-resistant, and feature varieties we have grown and loved ourselves.”

A wide variety of vegetables, annual flowers, herbs, and perennials known to grow well in Otsego County will be featured at reasonable prices. Choosing plant varieties not frequently found in local retail establishments, Master Gardener volunteers cultivated from seed, heirloom, and blight-resistant tomatoes, deer-resistant and pollinator-attracting plants, and a few unusual varieties they love in their gardens. All plants sold have been planted in sterile potting media. To avoid the spread of jumping worms, Master Gardener Volunteers will not be digging perennials from their gardens.

Cornell-trained Master Gardener Volunteers will be on hand to answer questions about planting, nurturing, and harvesting, and to assist in plant selections.

Preparing for the sale: Please note that there will be no pre-sale options and the plant sale will open promptly at 9 a.m. (no early birds). While CCESO is very proud of its new parking area, we anticipate parking to be limited for this one-day sale. Customers are encouraged to walk in or take the trolley ($5 for the day).  If you take the trolley, when boarding, please tell the driver that you plan on getting off at Cornell Cooperative Extension at 123 Lake St, across from the golf course.

Cash or checks are preferred, although credit cards and PayPal are accepted. For more information and continuing updates follow the webpage Gardeners may also leave a voicemail message at 607-547-2536 ext. 235 for questions. 

Plant sale proceeds support the outreach and educational efforts of the Master Gardener Volunteer Program of Otsego County.
