Plant Sale
The Desert Botanical Garden's Fall Plant Sale is legendary, with just about any native or desert-adapted plant available in one spot. Plant addicts line up early to be able to snatch up unusual and hard to find varieties. Staff horticulturists and volunteers are available to answer questions. Sale is open to the public on October 20-21 from 9 am to 5 pm. Members only on October 19, but it's worth joining to get first pick! The Garden is located at 1201 N. Galvin Parkway, Phoenix. For more info, call 480-941-1225.
