Since fall is the best time of the year for landscape planting in Fort Worth, it’s also the best time to buy your plants.

And the Fort Worth Botanic Garden, 3220 Botanic Garden Blvd., is the best place to get great plants during the annual fall plant sale. This year’s one-day event is on Saturday, Oct. 9, 9 a.m.-2 p.m. in The Grove, the wooded area west of the Trial Garden and Japanese Garden parking lot.

The sale is a great opportunity to stock up on many native and adapted plants that can take North Texas heat and live on annual rainfall.

A wide assortment of trees, shrubs, grasses, ground covers, perennials, vines, and spring-flowering bulbs will be available. Plus, the sale features many specialty plants grown at the Botanic Garden. In addition, rose, African violet, begonia, iris, daylily,cactus and succulent, and daffodil societies will be selling plants. Other vendors will offer garden-related merchandise as well.

Garden staff will be on site to answer your plant questions, but be sure to bring your own wagon or cart for loading plants.

Free parking is at the Linden Street lot, which is accessible from I-30 by taking the Montgomery Street exit and heading north 0.3 mile to the lot.
