Perennial Plant Sale is Live Again in 2022
Once again, on Saturday, April 9, 2022, the Nashville Fairgrounds will be overflowing with hundreds of locally grown perennials and shrubs, thanks to the 30th annual Perennial Plant Society Plant Sale. The sale, which for the last two years has been conducted online, will open its doors to in-person shopping starting at 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. Arrive by 8 a.m. for a good spot in line.
“We are so excited to welcome Middle Tennessee gardeners back to see, and smell, and buy all the amazing flowers and shrubs we have selected from our local growers,” says PPS Plant Acquisition’s Co-hair Mickey Newman. “Lots of our Perennial Plant Society members will be on hand to greet our loyal customers and offer advice on the best plants for their gardens.” A preliminary list of available plants will be available on the Perennial Plant website (www.ppsmtn.org) in late January 2022.
This year’s sale will take place at the Fairground’s new Expo 3 building. The larger, light-filled space will give shoppers more room to see all the great plants. Bigger aisles will also allow customer to bring carts to carry more plants. The new layout also features a curbside Concierge pick up option for orders.
Profits from the sale fund horticultural scholarships at local colleges as well as PPS education programs, which are free to the public. Go to ppsmtn.org to learn more about upcoming in-person and Zoom meetings.
So whether you’re longing for a old garden favorite or craving the latest exotic cultivar, you’ll find the best prices and the largest local selection at the April 9 Perennial Plant Society Sale. Admission is free; Metro charges $5 for parking.
