We’re looking forward to loading up our roof garden with plants from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden plant sale on May 5 and 6. Last summer we hauled in plants from all over Brooklyn and Manhattan . . . but the Brooklyn Botanic Garden is only a few blocks from our apartment so this will be great. In the Garden on LoHud.com has all the details. This will be our first sale, so R* and I are really looking forward to it.
“Dedicated to helping local urbanites improve their gardens while making the city greener, the two-day Plant Sale offers both indoor and outdoor plants, including a vast selection of perennials, shrubs, trees, and vines; herbs and vegetables, including heirloom varieties; exotic tropicals; native plants; hanging baskets; orchids; “collector’s corners” of rare and unusual annuals; and much more.”
Brooklyn Botanic Garden members are invited to a Members-Only Preview Sale will be held on Tuesday, May 4, from 4:30 to 8 p.m.
