"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.
