Garden art featured at Plant Sale
The annual Southside Master Gardener Association Plant Sale will be held on Saturday, May 6th from 7:30 a.m. until 11:30 a.m. in the parking lot in front of the Halifax County Extension Office, 171 S. Main Street, Halifax. All types of plants will be available including annuals, herbs, perennials, vegetables, shrubs and trees. The sale will also offer handmade garden art.
Using old metal car parts and other pieces to make garden art is a great way to go green. How creative to use horseshoes to make an owl’s eyes and an old garden rake for the wings. With some horseshoes, a hammer, a couple washers and some rebar you have a dog that will never bite. A cat was made with horseshoes, washers, locknuts, welding rods and rebar that will look lovely in the garden and will scare the mice and voles. This is just a sampling of the garden art for sale at the Plant Sale.
Hypertufa is the name of a process of making garden containers, ornaments, sculptures or stepping-stones using Portland cement, perlite and peat. The process was developed as a substitute for volcanic rock called Tufa that was traditionally used to make Alpine troughs. This
year, there will be draped and basket hypertufa as well as traditional hypertufa containers. Some hypertufa was shaped to resemble stones and dressed up as beneficial insects, another great addition to your garden.
Caption for picture: These hypertufa lady bugs will brighten your garden and will be available for sale at the Master Gardener May 6th Plant Sale. Many different types of locally grown plants will be for sale also.
