The Memphis Botanic Garden’s greenhouse
manager and grower, Manny Pailet, is extremely dedicated to his plants, even
planning his vacation times around when particular plants need special
attention in order to be at their best.
With help from volunteers like Anne
Knapp, who has volunteered on and off for the past ten years, Pailet has timed
many varieties to be in bloom just for our Pop-Up Plant Sale that will be held on October 3 from 9:00 a.m. to
“We have been grooming the plants,
getting them all together in one spot, and going through them one by one to see
what we can sell. We then price the plants and line up more volunteers to help
us with the actual sale. We have about 4 to 5 volunteers most days, but there
are never enough. and we are always looking for more people to volunteer,” says
Presented by Wright Medical Technology,
Inc., this year’s Fall Plant Sale will be a one-day-only event featuring an
exclusive and diverse collection of plants cultivated in our very own
greenhouse and nursery. These plants, which are used on the Garden’s grounds and
indoor facilities, are selected for their unique features, healthiness, and
hardiness. Garden staff and volunteers who work with these plants daily will be
on hand during the sale to guide you on selection and plant care tips.
