The Fort Worth Botanic Garden annual fall plant sale returns Sept. 26 through Sept. 29 – online only. Stock up on mums, autumn sage and more while enjoying access to planting advice from Master Gardeners. Members have access to a one-day preview sale on Sept. 25 as well as 10 percent off their purchase. Order pick-up dates are October 2 through October 4.
“The plant sale is an opportunity for area residents to shop for plants specifically selected to thrive in north central Texas gardens,” said Botanic Garden Sr. Horticulturist Steve Huddleston. “We sell only the healthiest, best-performing plants.”
To ensure guest safety, the plant sale is offered virtually this year. Shoppers will select plants online, and, at checkout, schedule a time to pick up their orders at the Garden. Those with questions about selecting and growing plants will be able to call in and chat with Master Gardeners. “We know the opportunity to consult with an expert is one of the most valuable parts of the live plant sale,” Huddleston said.
Plants available will include annuals, perennials, bulbs, trees and shrubs, all chosen by garden experts. The Garden’s resident citrus specialist, Rob Bauereisen, will also offer a variety of citrus trees and will be available for consultation by phone or email.
