Fall Gardeners' Market

Garden Vision Epimediums at the Fall Gardeners' Market

Saturday, August 26
8:30am - 12:30pm
Freedoms Foundation, Valley Forge, PA

Get the best plants at the very best time of year for planting!  Choose some new additions to your gardens while hangin' out with fellow gardeners at the HPS/MAG Fall Gardeners' Market. 

August may seem like a strange month to buy plants but it's actually not a bad idea. We get a head start on all the Fall sales and we can do it in just one place instead of going from nursery to nursery. It's a perfect time to assess your garden and make improvements. Cooler temperatures resume to a more comfortable range to garden in after the hot summer.

We will have 21 of your favorite vendors bringing you conifers, rare trees and shrubs (woodies and evergreens), natives, perennials, ferns, sun and shade garden plants, and specialty plants such as native azaleas, ITOH peonies, hellebores, and pitcher plants. Several vendors will also feature horticultural tools and supplies, honey products, garden art, specialty soils and garden design, installation, and maintenance services to get going on your Fall plan.

This ever popular event will continue the tradition of offering an auction, special pricing on nitrile gardening gloves and a membership booth, nonmembers can chat about HPS with longtime members, and may join or renew HPS that day.

Volunteers will be on hand to direct parking and load your cars. Bring a wagon or cart to carry your purchases. A plant park is available to leave your selections, while you continue to shop. Bring your friends and neighbors. The sale is free and open to everyone.
