YORKVILLE, Ill. – May is finally here! Get great plants for your garden and give back to the community with the Kendall County Master Gardener Plant Sale 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 21 in Yorkville.

Local Master Gardener volunteers started more than 700 vegetable seedlings, including 15 varieties of tomatoes and nine pepper varieties. The sale also includes native plants and nursery-stock perennials, and Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer gardening questions.
