Reflection Riding Arboretum & Nature Center presents the Fall Native Plant Sale on Friday, Sept. 21 and Saturday, Sept.
22, from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. With family programs throughout the weekend and an impressive selection of plants native to Tennessee, the Fall Native Plant Sale is the region’s best option for new and experienced gardeners wanting to stock up on native trees, shrubs, and perennials for their autumn planting.
John Evans, director of Horticulture at Reflection Riding, said of the sale, “We’re continuing to increase the number of plant species we offer, and that’s exciting because it promotes biodiversity in our yards and communities. The fall is also a great time to plant, because by the time spring comes, you can just sit back and enjoy your garden as it comes to life.”
Other highlights of the Fall Native Plant Sale include:
A wide variety of mature azaleas in sizes ranging from 1 to 3-gallon pots.
Landscape Architect Consultations Saturday from 10 a.m.-3 p.m.: Meet with WMW and Associates Principal Matt Whitaker to discuss your most challenging sustainable landscaping challenges. Choose from a 15 or 30-minute consultation for $15 or $30. Proceeds will benefit Reflection Riding.
Free educational programs on Friday and Saturday, including a walking discussion of the American Chestnut Restoration Program, Planting for Pollinators, and Understanding the Hemlock Woolly Adelgid.
Healing Through Southern Color: Join this medicinal plant-based printing workshop to learn the basic skills of block/stencil printing using natural colors extracted from local plants. $30 per person.
