It’s September, and that means that soon the temperature will start to fall and the blistering heat of summer will be gone. Suddenly, you’ll want to spend more time outside. Suddenly, sitting on the patio or the porch will be delightful. Suddenly, you’ll want to work in your garden.
Make sure you stock up on plants at the Botanic Garden Virtual Plant Sale, Sept. 26-29, with order pickup Oct. 2-4. GROW members will have access to a one-day preview sale Sept. 25 as well as 10% off their order.
“The plant sale is an opportunity for area residents to shop for plants specifically selected to thrive in North Central Texas gardens,” said botanic garden senior horticulturist Steve Huddleston.
The sale allows gardeners to get plants in the ground after the summer heat has ended but before winter chills the ground.
“Fall is the best time to plant in North Central Texas,” Huddleston said. “Plants have a chance to establish their root systems before the onslaught of next summer’s heat.”
The exact plant selection will not be known until shortly before the sale. Botanic Garden staff will visit growers the week prior and pick the best-looking and best-performing plants available.Learn more about the sale and view a preliminary list of plants to be offered.
