The Douglas County 4-H Junior Master Gardener Club is taking orders for its annual small fruit plant sale through Nov. 7.

Appropriately, the fruit plants will be delivered at their optimum planting season.

“Fall is the ideal time to plant all woody plants,” said Livingston. “Including fruit trees and ornamental trees. That way, the plant’s root system has time to get established.”

An added bonus, he said, is “that you see better prices in the winter months.”

The club is selling a variety of blueberry, blackberry and fig plants in one and three-gallon containers.

One-gallon plants are $8.75 each and three-gallon plants are $13.75 each.

Order forms are available through the county extension office. Payment should be submitted with pre-orders.

Orders will be available for pickup on Nov. 9 from 3 to 6 p.m. at the UGA Douglas County Cooperative Extension office at 6279 Fairburn Road.

Information: (770) 920-7224 or email Uge2097@uga.edu.
