The Buzz

Behind the scenes of the upcoming Spring Plant Sale

 

Starting in October through January, the Memphis Botanic Garden receives plants for the spring's biggest plant sale.

This year will be fantastic. We are featuring a wide variety of sun and shade perennials, herbs, and vegetables. There will also be trees, shrubs, and annuals. This year we will have a large number of mini and small hostas, spider form daylilies and Bletilla  (hardy Chinese ground orchid) just to name a few.

       

Our goal at the Garden is to give each plant the special attention it needs, like soil requirements and fertilizers, then carefully grow outside where they receive the proper amount of water throughout the winter and, of course, vernilazation (subjection to cold temperatures).  This will give the consumer the very best plants and latest cultivars resulting in the highest quality plants. Many of these plants can be found around the Memphis Botanic Garden in our own plantings.

       

Interested in volunteering? Submit your contact information and interests here. We meet Monday, Wednesday, Friday 8:30 a.m.to 10:30 a.m.  The Garden will have plants avalible for sale throughout the year from our nursery and on our plant racks. Become a member to receive additional discounts on plant purchases.
