FWBG OFFERS PLANTS AND GARDENING ADVICE AT THE ANNUAL PLANT SPRING PLANT SALE

It’s finally here! The always-popular spring plant sale at the Fort Worth Botanic will take place April 5 (2-6:30 p.m.) and 6 (9 a.m.-3 p.m.) at the Garden’s Grove area. A special preview and Q&A will take place on April 3 (5-6:30 p.m.). Participants must register at https://fwbg.org/events/spring-plant-sale-2024/ to attend. 

The spring plant sale will feature a wide assortment of annuals, perennials, citrus trees, fruit trees, shrubs, bulbs, and seeds. The sale will also include many specialty plants grown at the Garden, as well as plants offered by various local plant societies. Vendors will also be onsite selling their own garden-related merchandise. Guests are encouraged to bring their own wagons to transport plants to their vehicles. FWBG’s goal is for this year’s sale to be cashless, so please bring debit and credit cards, or use Apple Pay.  

The semi-annual plant sale is a great opportunity for weekend gardeners to ask for plant advice from our expert horticultural staff, who can assist in finding plants that will work best in different yards and landscapes. The Garden’s education staff will also be on hand to help guide those looking for child-friendly plants that are nontoxic and have features that are appropriate for our youngest gardening enthusiasts (durable, an element that can be picked or counted, touchable, smells good, tastes good, etc.).  

To reach the Grove, park at the West Entrance (3408 West Freeway, 76108) and enter through Lot D Gate. Entrance to the event is free and proceeds from the plant sale benefit FWBG.
