The Watauga County Annual Community Plant Sale will take place on Saturday, June 10, at the former Aunt Pymm’s Table Antiques location, 375 Old U.S. Highway 421 S. in Boone.
All proceeds from the sale benefit the Watauga County Democratic Party.
The sale is held from 7 a.m. – 2 p.m. There are no early sales. Plant shoppers are encouraged to come early for best selection.
Organizers say that last year’s sale was attended by over 700 people from seven states. More than 60 volunteers have been working on this year’s community plant sale since January and say they will offer thousands of annuals, perennials, trees and shrubs at bargain prices.
Just a few of this year’s “Featured Plants” include American Tupelos; heritage Nicotiana; Outhouse Hollyhocks; rare and specialty grafted Japanese Maples; Old Timey Snowball Bushes; Rain lilies; Old Spice Sweet Peas; Peruvian Daffodils; American Beauty Berries; Balsam; Hopi Dye Sunflowers; vegetable plants for container growing; and much more.
The sale also features “Outdoor Garden rooms,” with vintage or modern garden furniture and accessories for sale as well as container gardens and herb baskets.
Organizers encourage buyers to ask for “Personal Shoppers” who will help direct them to plants they are looking for and help them choose plants for difficult garden spaces. All visitors can also take a break from plant shopping to enjoy a cup of coffee and local homemade scones and muffins or stroll the gardens on-site.
