The eighth annual Master Gardeners of Roane County plant sale on May 4 was postponed due to rain.
The sale has been rescheduled from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. May 18 at Ladd Landing in Kingston.
This is a public opportunity to obtain plants, knowledge and information from trained volunteers through the Tennessee Master Gardener Program of Roane County and the University of Tennessee Extension.
Rocky Top General Store is known for its rustic and nostalgic pieces, and comments from customers about the Harriman business’ canning products has inspired a class on the classic Southern method of preserving food.

Mee said the free class will be June 8.
A University of Tennessee Extension agent will be providing the class, which will be informational.
