Please join Duke Gardens at our Spring Plant Sale on Saturday, March 30, 2019.
You'll find an array of plants ideal for this region, including Duke Gardens plants, trees, shrubs, vines, bulbs and air plants, as well as decorative plant pots. And you can get expert gardening advice from Duke Gardens' staff, Durham County Extension Master Gardeners and regional specialty vendors.
Hours: 8 a.m. to noon.

Non-members may join on site or save time by joining in advance. Members also receive a plant list in advance of the sale, so they can plan their shopping list early.
