"The Arboretum Spring Plant Sale is unique because of its emphasis on helping to create a sustainable world for butterflies, bees and other wildlife," says Pat Blanchat, plant sale chair. "People who garden just naturally want to share what they know and love about the environment, and that's one thing that makes our sale special - knowledgeable gardeners are always on hand to 'talk plants' and assist shoppers."

A preview sale and reception for Friends of the Arboretum members only will be held on Thursday, May 2 from 3:00 - 7:00 p.m. Non-members may join at that time. "We'll have many of the most interesting new varieties this year," notes Anne Wildeboor, Arboretum Horticulturist. "This is your chance to support the Arboretum while adding some fresh appeal to your garden."

All plants sold at the Spring Plant Sale are grown locally, and all proceeds go toward Arboretum projects. Karen Kerkhoff, Arboretum Supervisor, reminds us all that it's a great opportunity to shop for Mother's Day. "Bring a friend - bring a neighbor - introduce someone to the Arboretum."

Arboretum admission fee does not apply to those visiting the sale only.
