Come celebrate fall with us at The North Carolina Arboretum Plant Sale and Vendor Market through the Connections Gallery Gift Shop.

On Friday and Saturday, September 16 and 17, over 20 local vendors will share their best fall treasures with N.C. Arboretum members and visitors. Prep your garden for Spring and shop an outstanding collection of trees, shrubs, cut flowers and more. Come explore the seasonal delights of fall to the sounds of live music! Sale hours are Friday, September 16 from 12:00 p.m. – 3:00 p.m. and Saturday, September 17 from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m.

On Friday and Saturday from 12:30 p.m. – 1:00 p.m. you can also attend a complimentary Adult Education class “Gardening for the Birds (& Other Pollinators)“. Join Martha Rollesfson for an engaging overview for gardeners of all levels who want to blend the joy of bird watching with the satisfaction of creating a beautiful and healthy habitat that supports the food, water, shelter and nesting needs of birds, butterflies and other pollinators. The class will take place in the Pollinator Garden near the bird bath behind the Education Center.

The Plant Sale and Vendor Market will take place outdoors in the first bay of the Arboretum’s main parking lot. The Arboretum’s standard $16 parking fee applies for all non-members.
