Purdue Master Gardener volunteers will offer gardening advice, food, music, and advice and demonstrations for beginning and veteran gardeners at a Twilight Walk and Sale at The Allen County Extension office on Saturday, June 15th, beginning at 6:00 PM

Attendees at this free event can purchase perennials that Master Gardeners have dug from their own gardens or the Display Gardens. Native perennials will also be offered - also fresh compost in a take home and reusable pail. Attendees can listen to live dulcimer music as they tour the Display Gardens.
Eighteen separate theme gardens designed to educate citizens about plants suitable for tough Midwestern conditions. Featured demonstrations at each garden include: Kokedams - a Japanese garden art form, Impatiens-where are they this year? Designing a Cottage Garden, Ornamental Grasses for your home landscape, Flower arranging, How to keep Mason Bees, Native plants for rain gardens and container planting, Growing vegetables vertically, Rock gardens, Recycling household items into planters, and much more.

Bring your plant diagnostic samples to the gardens for a free analysis by our Master gardener Diagnostic team.

Enjoy refreshments at a local food truck visiting our event!
