Otsego County Master Gardener Plant Sale returns May 29

Written By Editor on 5/3/21 | 5/3/21

Rain or shine, the Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Otsego County will hold their annual plant sale on Saturday, May 29, from 9:00 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cornell Cooperative Extension Education and Outreach Center, 123 Lake Street in Cooperstown. 


Due to COVID, the plant sale will not be like in past years.  Individuals will be required to check-in and wear face masks and maintain social distancing.  A limited number of buyers will be allowed into the sale area at one time.  There will be no early preview of plants offered.   


Perennials, annuals, vegetables, and herbs which are known to grow well locally are featured, including selections with a low-grazing preference by deer.  The majority of plants have been started by Master Gardener volunteers who have cultivated unusual, hardy, and some hard-to-find selections, including heirloom and blight-resistant tomato varieties.  Master Gardeners are also offering hand-dug perennials that have been bare-rooted and repotted in sterile potting mix. 


Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions and to assist in plant selections.  Customers are encouraged to bring boxes to carry home purchases.  Cash or checks are preferred, although credit cards are accepted.  For more information and continuing updates on plants offered, follow the webpage  Gardeners may also leave questions for a volunteer response at 607.547.2536 x228.   


Proceeds from the sale will benefit educational outreach of the Master Gardeners Volunteer Program of Otsego County and the Grow with CCE Campaign, an exciting comprehensive site design to “Create a Place for Learning through Gardening.”  To learn more about this project, please visit
