Master Gardeners of Clinton County

The Clinton County Master Gardeners meet the third Monday of the month at the Clinton County Youth building, 251 E. 116 Highway, Plattsburg, MO. Master Gardeners are trained volunteers who provide research-based information and organize gardening projects in the community.  For more information about the Master Gardeners programs in Clinton County, please call the Clinton County Extension Office at 816-539-3765 Monday thru Friday 9-4, visit us on facebook MGs of Clinton County, or email

Next meeting August 28th (date was changed due to eclipse) at 6:30pm at the Youth Building.   Public invited.  We will be having our 3rd annual plant swap, come join the fun!

* potluck! bring a dish to share with others
* all plants identified - tag with care instructions is nice
* all plants potted in containers with soil - exceptions iris, bulbs
* please only bring 3 of any one type - ex: 3 purple coneflowers if different variety that is fine, 3 iris rhizones are considered 1 plant

Everyone will receive a ticket for their plant, the other half of the ticket will go into a hat for the drawing. So if you bring 5 different plants you will receive 5 tickets.Once everyone has arrived and has had time to view what plants are on the tables, and ask any questions they might have, we will start the drawing. First ticket drawn gets 1st pick of the plants, this repeats until all plants have new homes. You can bring annuals, perennials, house plants, and water garden plants. Great way to expand your garden at no cost.

Sometimes during the Master Gardener Plant Sale you may have seen a plant at the sale you wanted, but because we do not get to buy until around noon, it may have been gone. Feel free to send an email out to the MG's asking for it and just maybe it will show up at the swap!

Open to the public, friends, and family. PLEASE COME JOIN US. A very nice way to share plants.
