About the Plant Fair and Sale…
“We will have an incredible array of herbs, tomato plants, flowering plants and shrubs as well as some gardening books and garden decor,” said Patricia Collins, director of the Gardens. “This is a wonderful opportunity to buy some items that are very unique and sometimes hard-to-find.”

Not only will you be able to purchase plants and specialty items from Callaway Gardens’ selection, but also a dozen nurseries and specialty vendors from across the Southeast will offer plants and other gardening items for sale. They will also be on hand to answer questions you may have related to plants, gardening and landscaping.
