Fall Plant Sale (2019)

September 8, 2019 @ 5:00 am - 11:00 am

We’re gearing up for our Fall Plant Sale, which will include fall veggies, more native perennials, and houseplants. This year’s plant sale happens alongside Honey Fest.

Early fall is an excellent time to plant due to reduced water needs, fewer weeds, less stressful temperatures, and the potential for heartier root development. We are sure we will have a plant that is perfect for you this fall planting season.

Here are a few of the beautiful plants that you can find. For the complete list, click here.
