For all the gardeners out there, we know what the coming fall means – that it’s about to be planting season again! Although we’re in the heat of August and I am in denial that fall is around the corner (I’m never really ready for summer to end), I wanted to go ahead and take a look at when our Atlanta and Decatur fall plant sales are going to be so we can mark our calendars.
Saturday, October 10th starting at 8 a.m. at the Trees Atlanta’s Kendeda Center on Chester Avenue (map it!). The Trees Atlanta plant sale is always full of native and unusual species. Contact Greg Levine with questions at firstname.lastname@example.org or 404.681.4895. You can check out more Trees Atlanta events on their calendar!
Elachee Nature Science Center Native Plant Sale (slightly further afield in Gainesville, Georgia):
Elachee’s Pre-Order Fall Plant Sale list will be available Sept. 15th, and orders must be placed by Oct. 1st. Pre-order high quality, drought resistant plants, wildflowers, perennials, native azaleas, and woody shrubs that attract butterflies, birds and wildlife and will create a garden of color later this autumn. Mid-October pickup dates and times from the nature center to be announced soon. Get directions to the Elachee Nature Science Center!
