At the Garden’s spring sale you’ll find a diverse selection of choice native plants, spring bulbs and ephemerals, and unusual exotics. Plus, enjoy expanded kids activities this year on May 7 and 8! Bring your kids to the Sprout Spot between 10am and 4pm to dig, create, learn about plants, and make a gift for mom.
