Get your garden on at plant sale, garden expo

Whether you’re looking for fresh herbs to spice up your next offering from the kitchen or roses to set the table just right, you’ll find them at the 15th annual Summer Plant Sale and Garden Expo from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 9.

The sale will be held at the Botanic Garden, 7950 Independence Blvd., and will have such plants as culinary herbs, vegetables, roses, Louisiana irises, gingers, daylilies, begonias, succulents, ferns, native plants and much more.

Grown locally, these plants are ready to go into your own garden, and garden society members and vendors will be available to help out with advice on selecting, growing and maintenance.

The expo is sponsored by the Baton Rouge Botanic Garden Foundation Board, Friends of the Botanic Garden and BREC. All sale proceeds go to development of the Botanic Garden.

The sale will be held in the green area between the Garden Center and Airport Drive where the Crepe Myrtle Forest

begins, with the wooden atrium at

the entrance.
