They say time flies while you’re having fun. This may explain why the Garden Festival feels like it is coming so quickly. Yes, the Annual Plant Sale, which comes on the 3rd Week of November every year, is morphing into a Garden Festival. In the past, we had the Sam Polston auditorium at the Bert J Harris Agriculture Civic center full of great plant deals. We’ll have just as many great plant deals but so much more. So save the date of November 17th from 9 am-4 pm at 4509 George Blvd, Sebring, Florida
Out front of the Ag Civic Center, under the trees, will be Master Gardener information booths. Expect booths on butterfly and pollinator gardening orchids, succulents, worm composting, Florida-Friendly landscaping, a help desk and more. We will also have things to sell at our booths. Honey, painted rain-barrels, square foot gardens, frost cloth, orchids, succulents and more.
