Fall is one of the best times of year to plant — the soil is still warm enough to allow root systems to establish and cooler temperatures reduce your need to water. Get a head start on your fall plant buying and enjoy one-stop shopping at the Hardy Plant Society Mid-Atlantic Group’s (HPS/MAG) annual Fall Gardeners Market.
The Gardeners’ Market, co-hosted by the Ambler Arboretum of Temple University, will feature 20 different vendors, including sellers of succulents, native plants, fancy weeds, trees and shrubs, and tons of unique specimens you won’t find elsewhere.
Planters, tools and hypertufa are also for sale. In addition the event will include special pricing will be offered on nitrile gardening gloves, a Raffle and two Food Trucks with delicious fare.
A free guided tour of the Arboretum will be held at 11 a.m. A plant park is available to corral your purchases while you continue to shop.
