Georgia’s biggest two-day plant sale returns this weekend as the Hall County Master Gardeners present the Fall Garden Expo on Friday, Sept. 20 and Saturday, Sept. 21, at Chicopee Woods Agricultural Center in Gainesville.

Regular Expo visitors will recognize many returning vendors such as Nichols Nursery, Charles Street Garden, Smithgall Woodland Garden, Horizons Ltd and Gardeners Pottery. The public will have plenty of varieties of plants to choose from, including native plants which more gardeners agree are hardier and attract beneficial insects such as pollinators.

Speakers will be on hand each day including Eleanor Craig, who will talk about hardy ferns and companions for a shade garden at 1 p.m. Friday.

Food vendors will be there, too.

Carts will be available to borrow. A holding area is set aside for shoppers whose eyes are bigger than their carts to place their goodies while they continue shopping.

Gates are open from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday and 8:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Saturday at 1855 Calvary Church Road in Gainesville.

Admission is $2 per adult. Children are admitted for free. Pets are not allowed.
