Native Azalea Plant Sale
The Lee County Master Gardeners Association will be hosting a native azalea plant sale on Saturday, April 4 from 9 a.m. to noon at the Dean Road Recreation Center, located at 307 S. Dean Rd.
Native Plants grew here prior to the arrival of Europeans in North America and generally require less care and maintenance and they contribute to maintaining our native ecosystem. Master Gardeners will be available to answer questions and offer suggestions.
The LCMGA supports the Auburn-Opelika community by offering a variety of garden related programs and workshops for the public. The association also maintains several community demonstration gardens. For more information, visit the LCMGA website and become a Friend of the Lee County Master Gardeners.
