Planting shrubs and perennials in the cooler days of autumn is great for both gardener and garden (the plants get some good roots established for strong growth in the spring).   So, come shop from our outstanding selection of natives, and choice selection of woodies and perennials, plus some favorite cool-weather annuals.  Staff and volunteers will be ready to answer questions and make suggestions.  All proceeds support the operations of the Botanical Gardens.  Parking attendants will be on hand to direct parking and entry into lot for plant pick-up. Cash, check, and Mastercard/Visa accepted.  See you at the sale!

Seeds on the Move”  Explore the wonders of seed dispersal!  Plants have many ways to “pack a lunch” for the next generation and send them off into the world.  On their way to a new home, many seeds provide food to other creatures.  Join Mae Lin to unwrap the wonders of seeds on the move and make a craft to take home.

$5 per participant.
Program is limited to 12 children — register by emailing Mae Lin at mlplumme@uncc.edu.
