Description

Visit the Botanic Garden on Tuesday, May 28 for a special plant sale. We have several hundred seedlings and small plants, including 'Big Jim' green chiles, heirloom tomatoes and a variety of annuals available for $1 each.

Quantities are limited, so the plant sale will last from 10 a.m. until we sell out (or 2 p.m.).

The plants are extras from the Heritage Farm and our annual summer change-out.  Due to water shortages, our farmers are not planting the 1-acre crop field, which is watered from the acequia.

Please note: the tomatoes have grown a little "leggy," while we determined what to do at Heritage Farm. We suggest trimming off lower branches and planting them deep (roots will grow all along the buried part of the stem).

Price

No ticket is required for the Plant Sale, which takes place on the Main Plaza.
