Birmingham Botanical Gardens Fall Plant Sale 2019
It’s August, which means summertime is starting to come to a close. But it’s not quite over just yet, and the proof of that is in the plants! That’s right, before the leaves start changing and eventually falling off, come out to the Birmingham Botanical Gardens Fall Plant Sale to stock up on those greens while you can! As we mentioned Autumn is on its way, and there’s no better time to plant trees and shrubs than now!
Plants not only make awesome gifts for friends and family members with fall birthdays, but they also make a perfect addition to your home. You can lighten up just about any room with a potted plant in the corner, and hanging plants also make an easy decoration to fill a blank wall or empty shelf.
