    Long before we all head out to the Rockfish Ruritan Park next month to buy our plants at the annual sale, members of the Master Gardeners are busy getting plants ready.

    Above Nancy Longton and Ruth Powell of Nelson Master Gardeners dig up and separate plants that will sell at next month’s Pre-Mother’s Day Plant Sale on May 6th.

    On Wednesday several members met at fellow gardener’s home of Milly Colella in the Rockfish Airpark to dig up several varities of plants that will be on sale next month. Milly’s yard was one of several the gardeners have been working in over the past week or so.

    Here Nelson Master Gardener, Ruth Hartzell, coordinator for the dig, and Milly Colella work on separating larger plants to pot for the sale.
