The 2017 Spring Plant Sale and Festival will be colorful, interesting and fun! We have added even more for you to enjoy as you shop: more plants, more flowers, more seminars, more food trucks, more entertainment, more children’s activities, more vendors! We will emphasize education by offering gardening activities for children to enjoy as they learn and educational talks for adults featuring new plant introductions, forming a garden collection, planning your first landscape and designing seasonal arrangements in containers. This special community event will be your one-stop shopping venue for garden plants, soil testing by Master Gardeners and great free advice from our HBG and Garden Guild plant experts.
