SPRING PLANT SALE: CALLING ALL PLANT WHISPERERS
The widely popular event is offered online only
FORT WORTH, Texas (February 25, 2021) — The Fort Worth Botanic Garden | Botanical Research Institute of Texas (FWBG|BRIT) offers a Spring Plant Sale April 9 through April 11 – online only.
Stock up on spring plants while taking advantage of Garden professional consultations if needed. Members have access to a preview sale April 7-8 as well as a 10 percent discount on their purchase. Order pick-up dates are April 16 through April 18.
“The spring sale is a community favorite for area residents who appreciate our plant selection and friendly advice,” said Bob Byers, VP of horticulture and assistant director. “This year, it’s also an opportunity to replace some of the plants that didn’t survive the February hard freeze.”
To ensure guest safety, the plant sale is offered again virtually. Shoppers will select plants online, and, at checkout, schedule a time to pick up their orders at the Garden. Those with questions about selecting and growing plants will be able to call in and chat with Master Gardeners.
Plants available will include perennials, bulbs, tree and shrubs, all chosen by garden experts. The Garden’s resident citrus specialist, Rob Bauereisen, will also offer a variety of citrus trees and will be available for consultation by phone or email.
