Mother’s Day Chosen Spot Plant Expo & Sale


A sample of the plants available at our Mother’s Day Plant Sale.

We are not holding a Mother’s Day event in 2021. Instead, we are holding smaller weekend plant sales twice a month. The May dates are May 1-2 & May 15-16, 1:00-4:00.

We have every expectation that we’ll be able to hold our regular event in 2022.

Hours: 11:00-3:00
Cost: $3:00, Children under 12 free

Come enjoy the Spring Gardens, tour the Home, buy plants & bouquets, and enjoy the special activities.
