This just in from the Brooklyn Botanic Garden: I just wanted to give you a heads up that BBG's annual benefit Plant Sale, the largest in the Northeast (with over 20,000 plants!) opens to the public tomorrow and continues through Thursday morning. (BBG members have access to the preview sale tonight, from 4:30 to 8.) The Plant Sale takes place on Cherry Esplanade, where right now hundreds of flowering cherry trees are dropping their petals like pink snow to form a breathtaking petal carpet. Considering the multitude and diversity of the colorful plants for sale, the beauty of the setting, the BBG hort experts on hand to answer questions and the little red wagons we provide for shoppers for their "plantsportation," the sale is a really dynamic experience all around. If any of your readers are thinking about their backyards or windowsills, there's no better place to shop for their plants.
They're also offering a bunch of free classes. Check out their website for more info!
And speaking of plants, Root Stock & Quade is slated to open today on Myrtle Avenue!
