Best of Birmingham – Spring Plant Sale

Every year at this time the Birmingham Botanical Gardens hosts its Spring Plant Sale.  This sale has everything from roses to tropicals, awesome quality vegetable plants, annuals and perennials. Don’t miss this years signature plant – Senorita Rosalita® Cleome hybrid ‘Inncleosr which will be on sale for $5/each. Proceeds from this sale underwrite the educational programs at the gardens.

I will be working the rose sale tables on Friday & Saturday. We always have an excellent selection of “Earth Kind” roses. These are easy grow, easy care roses that are sure to please. I hope you will stop by and say hello.  It’s great to meet blogging friends.

The Best of Birmingham is a series of posts dedicated to the best that the City of Birmingham has to offer.  Stay tuned for more posts in this series.
