For the first time, the Spring Plant Sale will be hosted along the pathways of the new Great Lawn space. Guests are highly encouraged to bring a wagon, cart, or carrying boxes to transport their plants home. The distance for walking is much greater than in the past so please wear comfortable shoes.
