TOP 5 SPRING PLANT & FLOWER SALES IN DFW | 2018 EDITION

March 17, 2018

Last year our plant sale list post was a big hit so I wanted to share one again this year.  I am so thankful that so many people found it so helpful, and I encourage you all to go out and support these plants sales if you can. Thanks to the unique and native plant sells I have so many wonderful plants that I would have never been able to locate around town. There are so many plant sales in DFW, but these are by far my favorites.

Last year I shared the Native Plant Society of Texas Dallas Chapter’s Plant Salebut unfortunately they have not planned their Spring sale just yet. I will add that to this list if I catch it in time because it’s another can’t miss sale.

I would also love to hear from those who attend any of these sales and learn which were your favorites. As I mentioned last year, I am partial to the Texas Discovery Garden sale since I am a member there, and Mom loves the Heard sale the best since she is a member there and a volunteer. No matter which sale is your favorite I encourage everyone to get outside and get gardening!
