The St. Croix Valley Master Gardeners Association will hold its annual plant sale on Saturday, June 2, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m., on the lawn of the Octagon House Museum at 1004 Third Street in Hudson.

Shoppers are encouraged to come early for the best selection of perennial and annual plants from the gardens of local master gardeners. Vegetable seedlings will be available including variety and heirloom tomatoes. Ask a master gardener a question - gardening advice is given freely.

The Master Gardeners is an association of horticulture enthusiasts who have completed a Master Gardening course offered by the UW-Extension Program. Their monthly meetings feature guest speakers on a variety of gardening topics. Members volunteer to care for gardens at nursing homes, schools, parks and public buildings.

The proceeds from the plant sale help to provide funding for grants that are awarded to community organizations for landscaping or gardening projects. For more information about the Master Gardeners Association visit their website at
