    2019 Bare Root Plant Event

    10:00 amMSU Tollgate Farm Conference Center,  28115 Meadowbrook Rd., Novi, MI 48377

    Join us for a free one-hour class on bare root plants!

    Get planting with bare root plants: Michigan gardeners carefully await their local frost-free dates to plant colorful perennials in their garden. Sometimes this seems like forever!
    During the class, you can get a jump on spring planting by learning the many attributes of choosing bare-root plants. Fully dormant, bare root perennials will acclimate naturally to your soil type and growing environment.

    We will also explore a rich pallet of perennials to add interest, seasonal color and pollinator resources in your perennial garden. Please join us for this program which combines a free educational session with a bare root plant sale to benefit MSU Extension consumer horticulture community outreach efforts and the Extension Master Gardener programs in Livingston, Oakland and Wayne Counties.

    You may register to attend the free class or attend class and take delivery on your pre-ordered plants.
