Memphis Botanic Garden (MBG) will host its annual Spring Plant Sale on April 13-15 from 8 am to 4 pm at its Nursery at the Garden. MBG Members have exclusive access to the sale on April 13; the event is only open to MBG Members on April 13. It is free and open to the public on April 14 and 15. No reservations are needed. The Spring Plant Sale is MBG’s largest plant sale of the year and features a great selection of natives, pollinator plants, woodland ephemerals, trees, shrubs, vegetables, herbs, annual flowers, tropicals, houseplants, and more. Shoppers can choose from thousands of plants carefully curated for the sale and well-suited to thrive in the Mid-South climate, including many from the Garden’s greenhouses.
“Our staff is really excited about our offerings at this year’s Spring Plant Sale. All of our plants have either been grown in-house by volunteers and our horticulture staff or handpicked and curated by MBG staff from local growers,” said Daniel Grose, Director of Horticulture. “We are going to have a huge stock of hard-to-find native plants, pollinator plants, rare indoor plants, and herbs and veggies, as well as many tried and true trees and shrubs for the Mid-South. We will have a dozen professional horticulturists working each day to help you choose and think through the best options for your garden. We can’t wait to see you there!”
Outside vendors will also be on-site during the sale for shoppers to score specialty items. Spirit Hill Maple Nursery will have popular & rare cultivars of Japanese Maples available for sale. Southern Cultured Orchards & Nursery will offer heirloom, native, and exotic fruit trees. Attendees can also purchase a new birdhouse or garden sign by Don Warmbrod to entice new friends to their outdoor oasis. Don’t miss these extra-special selections while you’re here! Plus, on April 15 Good Groceries Mobile Diner & Mempops will be on-site for shoppers to make a day of it and grab breakfast, lunch, or a sweet treat during their visit to the Nursery at the Garden.
