Sale hours are 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Saturday and noon-3 p.m. on Sunday. The sale will feature more than 30 varieties of herbs, native, and unique heirloom plants. New this year will be an even bigger selection of organic vegetables to grow in time to serve on your summer table. Plenty of annuals and perennials will be available, allowing customers a chance to refresh their sun or shade plants after the harsh winter. Knowledgeable volunteers and Master Gardeners will be on hand to help you select the right herbs and plants for your garden. Shoppers may also purchase beautiful containers at the sale, or bring their own clean pots for Nan Henson and her team of volunteers to design and plant on-site. Credit and debit cards will be accepted in addition to checks and cash.  All proceeds benefit Chieftains Museum/Major Ridge Home. For more: or call (706) 291-9494.
