The Walton County Master Gardeners are busy planning for their annual plant and tree sale to be held on Saturday, January 21, 2017, from 9 a.m. to noon at the County Fair Grounds. As in past years they are offering an opportunity to pre-order plants.
Pre-orders may be placed beginning Tuesday, November 1, 2016, and ending on Thursday, December 1, 2016. The forms for placing a pre-order and a list of plants are attached. These forms are also available at the Extension office in DeFuniak Springs and the annex in Grayton Beach. Orders may be placed in person at the Extension offices, called into the Extension at 850 892-8172, faxed to 850-892-8443 or emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org (This is a new address from last year.)
In the past couple years we have had difficulty getting citrus plants; however, this year we have a good supply of quality plants. A limited number of Satsuma tangerines, Meyer lemons and navel oranges will be available through pre-order on a first come-first served basis while supplies last. We will also have citrus available, including the types listed above as well as Hamlin orange, kumquat and grapefruit, on sale day.
