March 20, 2012. The Watauga County 4-H is offering their annual fruit plant sale this month. The sale will include berries such as blueberries, blackberries, strawberries and raspberries, and fruit trees including apple and pear trees. Orders are due by Friday, March 30.
Buying plants benefits the 4-H and also gives people the opportunity to garden and grow their own fruit.
Because the 4-H is part of the Cooperative Extension, they provide educational materials on the growing and care of the plants.
The fruit plant sale order form is available at the Extension office, located at 971 West King St., Boone. The form can also be downloaded from the Watauga 4-H website.
The plants will arrive Friday, April 20, from 12:00 to 6:00 p.m. and Saturday, April 21, from 9:30 a.m. to 12:00 noon.
