Sept. 26-27 Fall Native Plant Sale (continues for second weekend)
Time: 9am-4:30pm (rain or shine)
Fall, although often overlooked, is a wonderful time for gardening. Cooler temperatures and increased rainfall make it easier to introduce new shrubs, berries, and flowers for the next gardening season.
Come to the Virginia Living Museum’s annual Fall Native Plant Sale outdoors ONSITE in the Museum’s Conservation Garden and choose from an array of beautiful and unusual museum propagated plants ready for fall planting. Click here for list of available plants and useful information.
Many of these native plants are excellent for attracting wildlife to your yard and are a good choice for area gardeners because such plants tolerate the area’s weather.
The Museum’s Fall Native Plant Sale is the perfect opportunity to start designing a landscape with brilliant fall hues. Don’t let this opportunity for fall gardening pass you by.
