Mecklenburg County 4H Now Taking Orders For Plant Sale
10/15/2009

Charlotte, NC – Fall is here! There is no better time to update yards and gardens with plants from the Mecklenburg County 4-H Plant Sale. The 4-H program is taking orders for various berry plants through October 30. All proceeds support Mecklenburg youth and teens attending summer camps and leadership programs.

Offered for sale this year are:
  • Blueberries: Tifblue, Premier, and Brightwell
  • Blackberries: Ouachita and Triple Crown
  • Muscadines: Cowart and Triumph
  • Raspberries: – Nova and Heritage

These plants ate $8 each ($7 if ten or more). All plants are sold in one-gallon containers and are three years old. Note: Blueberry bushes must be planted with other varieties to produce fruit. Blackberry plants are thornless, erect-erect growing varieties and do not need a trellis. Muscadine vines and raspberry plants are self-fertile varieties and need a trellis.

To order plants, call the 4-H office weekdays 8am–5pm: 704-336-2082. Or order online at www.mecklenburgcounty4h.org. More detailed information on varieties is available on the website.
