Otsego County Master Gardener Plant Sale returns May 21st

Written By Editor on 5/15/22 | 5/15/22

Rain or shine, the Master Gardeners of Cornell Cooperative Extension of Otsego County will hold their annual plant sale on Saturday, May 21, 2022, from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at Cornell Cooperative Extension Education Center, 123 Lake Street in Cooperstown.  Please note that the date of the sale is earlier this year, in past years it was traditionally held on the last weekend in May.

The selections at the Otsego Master Gardener Plant Sale were chosen with YOU in mind. We drew upon research from the Cornell Vegetable and Cornell Flower Trials, and the AAS Trials 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 many are varieties we have grown and loved ourselves. We grew the best for you!

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 plants, and a few unusual varieties they love in their gardens.  All plants sold have been planted in sterile potting media. Unlike in past years, Master Gardeners will not be digging perennials from their gardens, in an effort to avoid the spread of jumping worms.  However, a limited selection of house plants from Master Gardeners’ own collections will be offered.

Cornell-trained Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions about planting, nurturing, and harvesting, 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 a voicemail message at 607-547-2536 ext. 0 for questions. 

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