Options for Placing Your Order:

  • Mail to: Watauga Extension Service 971 W. King St. Boone NC 28607
  • Drop off at our office. Unless you need assistance, please slide under door of the locked office to the right inside our lobby. Look for the sign.
  • Email order form. To: wataugamastergardener@gmail.com  You will still need to mail or drop off check. The order form is fillable, but it will not add amounts for you. Make sure you save with your name and put “fruit plant sale” in the subject line..
  • Pay with a check made out to Watauga County, **we regret not being able to take credit cards. As a state institution it is still difficult, as well as expensive, so for now we are keeping things simple and prices low by taking checks and cash. Please have correct amount, we don’t have change available.
  • Receipt will be emailed to you so you will know your order has been received and processed.
  • Availability of plants:  Heirloom apple varieties were custom grafted for us summer of 2020. Once we sell out of a variety we can’t get more, so sometimes need to make substitutions, especially towards the end of the sale. Before mailing a check, please look our website where we will list items we have sold out of. This can happen with some of the other plants as well. We do try to contact you if we feel like we don’t have a substitute that is very similar. It would also help us if you marked on your order “no substitutes” if you aren’t willing to take a substitute.
