VAN WERT – The Van Wert Master Gardeners will host an herb and perennial plant sale at the Van Wert County Fair Grounds, Junior Fair Building on April 27 starting at 8 a.m. The building is located right inside the fairgrounds, just off US 127 on the south side of Van Wert.

Quality culinary and aromatic herbs, and colorful varieties of perennial plants will be available for sale as well as pre-grouped herbal combinations that are ready to plant. Recipes for the herbs will also accompany the combinations. Micro-Greens are new for 2013. There will be plenty of additional gardening items for purchase. Pricing is very reasonable and Master Gardeners will be available to answer any questions.

There will be a special appearance by local freelance garden writer & photographer Kylee Baumle, who will be available to sign her newly released book titled Indoor Plant Decor. Learn about the benefits of adding living plants to the décor and how it pays off in enjoyment, pride of living space, and an increased sense of well being.

She publishes regularly in Horticulture and Ohio Gardener magazines, and is the book review editor for Horticulture. Baumle is a member of the Garden Writers of America.
