Spring planting is around the corner, and with over 700 varieties of plants at our Mother’s Day Plant Sale, you are sure to find what you might not even know you are looking for! Masses of herbs, vegetable starts, flowering perennials, and native flowers, trees, and shrubs join a host of annuals, mixed containers, hanging baskets, houseplants and Bonsai. Everything at the sale is locally grown for this annual fundraiser that supports Fort Wayne’s very own Botanical Conservatory. Volunteers are happy to answer questions and assist with plant selection and loading. Quality potting soil is also available along with compost worms and a variety of seed packets. All Conservatory members are invited to the special Preview Sale on Thursday, May 7 from 4:00-7:00 p.m. Memberships will also be available for purchase that evening if you are not yet a member and want a first peek. Be sure to come early for the best selection. For more information, call (260) 427-6440 or visit to view the list of plants intended for sale. Sponsored by WAJI Majic 95.1.
