Plant Sale Season is Upon Us (YAY!)

It's time for annual plant sales.. Two of my favorites are the National Arboretum sale:
Saturday, April 29th from 9:00 a.m. until 4:00 p.m.
(If you want to be an early bird you can shop Friday by joining the arboretum. It's a worthy cause.)

By the way, the azaleas will be at peak bloom this week. If you have the energy, that's a two-fer.

My other favorite is the All Hallows Guild: Flower Mart at the National Cathedral, May 5 and 6 this year. This is a day of festivities and--like the arboretum sale--includes a variety of vendors selling plants and plant-ephenalia.

As a public transit-using pedestrian, my challenge with both of these is bringing home the goodies. Anybody want to car-pool?

Some other garden shows coming up:
  • Franciscan Monastery Garden Guild 8th Annual Plant & Herb Sale will be held April 29 & 30 on the grounds of the Franciscan Monastery, 1400 Quincy Street NE,Washington, DC. For info call (703) 356-1019.
  • Green Spring Gardens Park includes Spring Garden Day, May 20
  • GardenFair - A One-of-a Kind Plant Sale at Winterthur this September 15-18. Want to plan an expedition with me?
