Get Planting with Help from Lewis Ginter Fall Plant Sale

There will be more plants than you can shake a stick at and plenty of sticks too I’m sure.




People that know way more than I do say that fall is a great time to plant. Personally, I plan to swing by on Friday and get more natives to attract local pollinators and birds. Great advantage of planting natives is that the need less care because hey, this climate is their jam.

Lewis Ginter

Friday, 9 a.m. – 5 p.m.; Saturday, 9 a.m. – 3 p.m. 

One of Central Virginia’s most-anticipated plant sales. Dozens of vendors and knowledgeable Garden volunteers help you choose your best plants!

Fall PlantFest is held outside in Parking Lot C at the Garden (no admission fee or ticket necessary.)
