Fall Plant Sale
Saturday October 10, 2015 - Sunday October 11, 2015:
Saturday, 9 am-5 pm, and Sunday, 12-4 pm
Beautiful Plants for Sale • Children’s activities
Soil Testing • Gardening Talks and Demonstrations
Southern gardeners know that fall is the prime time to plant trees, shrubs and perennials in the garden. Roots develop and establish themselves best in cooler weather which results in healthier blooms come spring. The sale again features a number of “Blue Ribbon” plants that are time tested and proven to grow well in North Alabama and have outstanding color, form or function in the home garden.
Got a garden spot in mind that’s looking a little bleak? Knowledgeable HBG staff, landscape designers, plant growers and experts will be on hand to answer garden related questions and assist patrons with selecting the right plant for the site. Bring a soil sample of the area (sample must be completely dry). The Master Gardeners of North Alabama will test the soil’s pH while you shop, and provide recommendations on what soil amendments you may need to help your new plants thrive.
