Home & Garden: Project Grow plant sale coming up, pre-order heirloom tomato, pepper, basil plants now
Monica Milla | Contributor
Project Grow manages 17 community garden sites and provides community education in gardening methods. The plant sale is Project Grow's annual fundraiser.
New this year, Project Grow is offering advance ordering ahead of the sale date. This way you can be sure that you get the varieties of plants you want, and pick them up a week before the actual sale.
There are more than 50 varieties of heirloom tomatoes, peppers, and basils to choose from. They are grown from seeds by Project Grow volunteers in the greenhouses at Matthaei Botanical Gardens. Plants are $3 each and are ready to be planted in your garden.
If you order ahead of time, your plants will be available for pickup on Saturday, May 14, and Sunday, May 15, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. from a residential location (with free, easy parking) in southeast Ann Arbor.
You can also order heirloom tomato and pepper seeds from Project Grow at any time, which will be mailed to you.
