2019 Top Fall Plant Sales in DFW

September 3, 2019

It’s that time of year when the local gardening clubs host their Fall Plant Sales. I do my best to round them up, but please call me out if I have left any off the list. Local plant sales are truly my favorite because of all the unique plants that I find, which are not available locally at nurseries. If only I could remember the names of all my finds after I plant them!
