Native Plant sale on 10/6 @State Botanical Garden in Athens

Macon, GA(Zone 8a)


This Saturday, October 6th is Bluestems and Blujeans: Native Plant Sale and Family Day at the State Botanical Garden of Georgia in Athens.

Here's a link for info on the event:

And here's a link to the tremendous list of plants available at the sale:

In addition, they just had small herd of Privet eating sheep delivered - and sheep, of course, have entertainment value of their own....

Oh how wonderful! We only have a large herd of vegetable eating deer. Thanks especially for including the plant list.

Unfortunately I am not able to make it either. I wish I'd known earlier. We should try to be more aware of their sales. They are on a regular schedule.

I'm sorry I didn't post it earlier, but the sale wasn't on my radar until I was at the Botanical Garden on Thursday for a Fall Wildflowers class (which was excellent, by the way).

I'll try to pay more attention in the future - both so I can post sales earlier but so I can attend, too!

BTW, that plant list is great, isn't it?

Fantastic! I'm hoping maybe some others can take advantage of this.
