Unusual selections at the HPS Fall Gardeners' Market

There are 11 top notch vendors participating in this sale, so don’t miss an opportunity purchase some fabulous plant material for your fall gardening plan.

Expand your palette of native plants. Unusual native carniverous plants grown by members of the Mid-Atlantic Carniverous Plant Society will be available for sale. Anyone can get on their mailing list, but only members can offer plants for sale at meetings. We suggested the HPS invite this younger club to sell at the Fall Gardeners' Market.

DV Branch of NARGS have been propagating cuttings from their rock gardens for this show since March. Look for unusual native plant offerings to sell out in the first hour.
