(PRESS RELEASE)_(West Palm Beach, FL – October 3, 2023) Returning next month with an autumnal horticultural flourish is the always popular Fall Plant-a-Palooza Plant Sale, Saturday and Sunday, November 4-5, hosted by Friends of the Mounts Botanical Garden.
“This Fall Fun-in-the-Sun plant sale will showcase more than 70 high-quality vendors in select Garden areas throughout our 20-acre tropical paradise, offering a great variety of rare, exotic, and hard-to-find orchids, plants, trees, herbs, ornamentals, succulents, cactus, bonsai, butterfly/native plants, shrubs and fruit trees, and so much more,” promises Mounts Curator-Director Rochelle Wolberg. “Whether you are an avid gardener or a budding beginner, Fall Plant-a-Palooza offers something for anyone with a green thumb.”
The Fall Plant-a-Palooza Plant Sale offers the perfect opportunity to learn about South Florida’s plant culture by speaking directly with growers, or by attending one of several fun and informative presentations by speakers and authors, all experts in their respective fields. Visitors can also browse among horticultural “must haves” and unique treasures in the Mounts Nursery and Vintage Garden Thrift Shop.
In addition, food and desert trucks will be at Mounts Botanical Garden both days.
A complete list of Plant-a-Palooza vendors and a location map will be posted the week of the event, as well as on the free mobile garden guide on Bloomberg Connects at https://www.mounts.org/mobile-garden-guide/.
