Make your garden even more beautiful – browse our wide selection of great-priced, Minnesota-grown perennials, shrubs, vegetables, heirloom tomatoes and much more! Gather your gardening friends and bring a box or wagon to bring home healthy, Minnesota-grown plants at reasonable prices. Master Gardeners nurture and grow these plants in their own gardens or as part of their research. A wide variety of sun and shade perennials, natives and woodland plants, grasses, groundcovers, shrubs and other landscape plants will be available, along with annuals and tons of veggies
including peppers, tomatoes and more.
In addition to the wonderful plants for sale, Master Gardeners will also be available to answer your plant questions. All proceeds from this sale benefit the University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener programs in Dakota County.
The Dakota County Master Gardeners are lucky to have orchid pro Paul Wood as one of our members. Paul recently shared his knowledge about orchids with all of us at a recent meeting, but Paul also shares his orchid keeping tips with everyone by offering classes during the year. Paul’s next class is Orchid Care on April 22 at the Diamondhead Community Center in Burnsville. Registration today!
Paul Wood has been a lifetime gardener. He is a University of Minnesota Extension Master Gardener and a member of the Orchid Society of Minnesota. He has been actively caring for orchids in his home, with varying degrees of success, for the last 15 years. He currently tends 40 orchids.
