CONSERVATORY FOUNDATION HOSTS NINTH PLANT SALE MAY 10-11

Sprucing up the garden just got a lot easier! Visit the Taylor Conservatory Foundation’s ninth annual Plant Sale on Saturday and Sunday, May 10-11, from 10-4 p.m., at 22314 Northline Road.

Garden enthusiasts can conveniently find the finest local plant selections, expert advice, unique garden plants and accessories all in one location. Join and support this wonderful educational public garden.  Admission is free. 

Plan to come early, as plants go fast and people line up early for the best selection. This is a rain or shine event. 

“Our Plant Sale is a great place to get unusual varieties of perennials, native and butterfly plants and vines, and catch up on the latest gardening trends," stated Perry Durham, TCF Plant Sale chairman. "We’ll have many one-of-a-kind treasures for your garden or home, including:  hand-crafted garden art, specialty-themed container gardens, bug and toad houses and more at the conservatory. 

“Rather than grabbing your plants and rushing off to your car, you can socialize with friends, relax, participate in our silent auction and learn some new things.” 

The Silent Auction is Saturday, 10-12 p.m.  The Plant Sale will continue on Sunday, from 10-4 p.m. 

In honor of National Public Gardens Day, the conservatory volunteers will be giving out free seeds with purchase, while supplies last. Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer any of your gardening questions, and refreshments will be available, too. 

The Plant Sale is a fundraiser for the conservatory, so you not only get some great plants, but know your contributing to a great cause.  Proceeds help fund family events and programs like the upcoming Art in the Garden series, Imagination in Bloom, and Butterfly Day.  

If you’d like to donate plants to the committee for the upcoming event or next year’s sale, contact Durham at 313-215-8885.  If you’d like to volunteer, contact: 888-383-4108.
