HUNTSVILLE, Ala. (WHNT) - The Huntsville Botanical Garden Guild will host the 32nd Annual Spring Plant Sale from Apr 19 – 21 behind Grisham Pavilion at the Garden.
There will be a wide variety of botanicals and advice from experts, just in time to get your garden ready for spring and summer. No gardening question will go unanswered and all advice is free of charge.
An ongoing Huntsville tradition, the plant sale offers annuals by the flat or pack, ferns, geraniums, a huge selection of herbs, cherished heirloom or ‘pass-along plants, houseplants, orchids, perennials, heirloom roses, hundreds of varieties of vegetable plants, water plants, vines, wildflowers, shrubs, vines, native azaleas and trees. All varieties have been specially selected to thrive in North Alabama.
A demonstration tent featuring the Botanical Garden’s plant expert Stacey Scannell will feature container gardening for sun, shade, foliage and herbs. Scannell will assist the public with plant selection and provide the ideal recipe detailing exactly which and how many of each plant you need to build your own colorful container.
The Master Gardeners of North Alabama will be conducting free pH tests for the plant sale shoppers in the Master Gardener Tent. Interested shoppers should bring a cup of “dry” soil from each lawn or garden area to be tested and drop off the soil for testing before they shop. Test results can be picked up at the Master Gardener’s tent as shoppers leave the sale.
A vendor area will include original yard art, tools, pots, garden sheds and gardening books – everything you need for a great garden.
There is no admission or parking charge and purchases are loaded, with care, for free. Admission is charged for visitors touring the Garden. The plant sale accepts MasterCard, Visa, and personal checks.
Hours are Friday, Apr 19 and Saturday, Apr 20 – 9 a.m. until 6 p.m. Sunday, April 21 – 12 p.m. until 5 p.m. Proceeds from the Spring Plant Sale, which is sponsored by The Garden Guild, benefit the Huntsville Botanical Garden.
