ANNUAL PLANT FAIR AND SALE AT CALLAWAY GARDENS®

Head to Callaway Gardens® with a plant list and a vehicle with enough room to take home all of the great finds at the Callaway Gardens® Plant Fair and Sale, March 27-30, 2008.

Choose from garden-related items and a wide array of flowering plants and shrubs, including many unique, hard-to-find varieties and native plants that thrive in the Southeast, often in challenging weather conditions.

Twenty nurseries and specialty vendors from throughout the Southeast will offer plants for sale, answer plant related questions and offer their very unique garden-related wares. Those participating include: Chattahoochee Valley Day Lily Society; Eagle’s Roost Herb Farm; Kombi Tools Inc.; Laurel Springs Nursery; Lewis Simmons Designs; Garden Delights; Granny’s Old Bloomers; Massee Lane Camellia Gardens; McMahon Nursery; Our Secret Garden; Petals from the Past; Rocky Branch Nursery; Sun Coast Orchids; The House of Bonsai and Wade’s Metal Works. New this year is Rock Hill Farms; Hollonville Nursery; Bodins Tropicals; and Fern Ridge Farms. Callaway Gardens’ volunteers will be selling plants grown at Callaway.

There will also be a Callaway Gardens retail booth featuring a wonderful selection of garden-related items including books such as Walter Reeves’ newest book Georgia Gardeners’ Q&A 501 Answers to Frequently Asked Questions. Reeves, who will be speaking with Mildred Pinnell Fockele at the March 28th Callaway Gardening School, will be on hand for autographing his books. Both will be speaking on best practices for gardening in tough conditions, including drought.

The Plant Fair and Sale will be open to the public Thursday, March 27 from 3:00 p.m. until 7:00 p.m. EDT and March 28 to 30 from 10:00 a.m. until 6:00 p.m.
