Top 5 Spring Plant & Flower Sales in DFW!

March 9, 2017

Mom and I just love to garden so we are constantly chatting about our latest plant finds and gardening plans. While at Dinner last night the top discussion was the various plant sales in DFW that we have on our radar for this Spring. There are several that we both enjoy, and since I was going to organize the info into a list for her and I, I figured I might as well share it with everyone else. Enjoy this list and please attend as many as you can so you can support these wonderful organizations!

Please make sure to share with me if you attend any of these sales and which were your favorites. I am partial to the Texas Discovery Garden sale since I am a member there, and I am obsessed with their Butterfly Garden. Mom loves the Heard sale since she volunteers there often and is a member. Also, I will plan on organizing this list in the Fall as well if everyone finds it beneficial. Happy Gardening my friends!
