The sale opens at 11 a.m. (and trust me, there will be people in line by 10 or 10:30) and lasts until 2 p.m..
Plants for sale include citrus, bulbs, perennials, vines, and the ever popular Peggy Martin roses. Last year, while I stood with several others waiting for the “doors” to open, everyone I spoke to said the same thing: I came early because I wanted to be sure to get a Peggy Martin.
The day includes a garage sale, kid’s corner, food booth and vendor booths. The money goes to scholarship programs, the demonstration garden at the airport and programs that encourage gardening in Southeast Texas. Admission – and parking – are free. For more details, call (409) 835-8461.
