For Immediate Release;
WVU Extension Agent for
Master Gardeners to Conduct Fruit Tree Fundraiser
The Putnam County Master Gardeners are conducting a Fruit Tree Fundraiser during the month of January and February. The public is invited to place their order for trees from Adams County Nursery, Inc. in PA with a bulk order placed by the local Master Gardener program. Order early as some trees run out early. Pending on the total number of trees that the group orders, typical savings per tree (when ordering 100 trees or more) are $18/tree for apple and pear varieties and approximately $17/tree for peach, plum and cherry trees. Last year we ordered 150 trees and trees averaged $12-$15 per tree. Orders and payments must be received by February 28th. Price breaks, premium charges, disease resistant varieties, rootstocks and pollination considerations are located at the company’s website (http://www.acnursery.com/acn_trees.php). A limited number of catalogues are available at the WVU Putnam County Extension Office. A $22 donation to the Putnam County Master Gardeners will be collected for each individual order; payment includes tree wraps. To place an order or for further questions call Town and Country Supply (Rock Branch) (304) 755-3520.
Programs and activities offered by the West Virginia University Extension Service are available to all persons without regard to race, color, sex, disability, religion, age, veteran status, political beliefs, sexual orientation, national origin, and marital or family status.
