The Friends of the National Arboretum will be holding a plant sale in conjunction with their garden fair this weekend, Friday, April 29 and Saturday, April 30, remainders (if any) sold Sunday, May 1. The event will be held at the US National Arboretum, 3501 New York Ave NE, off Bladensburg Rd.
This annual event from the Friends of the National Arboretum is a
long-standing favorite among serious and weekend gardeners alike – with
affordable prices and the widest range of plants and vendors of any
gardening event in Washington, D.C. Buy new, rare and hard-to-find
plants, with offerings from the finest specialty nurseries in the region
and more local plant societies than ever before. A great opportunity to
get advice from National Arboretum horticulturists, FONA master
gardeners, landscape designers and other local experts. Also fun and
educational activities for children, music performances, food vendors,
and garden accessories.
The fair coincides with the Arboretum's spectacular display of more
than 10,000 azaleas, so bring your friends, bring the family, and make a
day of it!
