U City in Bloom holds its Spring Plant Sale at the Heman Park Community Center (975 Pennsylvania) April 28-30. The event, held annually on the last weekend of April, offers St. Louis area gardeners the opportunity not just to buy plants but to ask for advice from experienced gardeners and even credentialed horticultural experts. It's also a great chance to socialize with fellow-lovers of all things green. All proceeds go toward helping U City in Bloom create and maintain public gardens in University City.

If you've decided to "Go Native," this is the sale for you. Perennials donated from U. City gardens will be available in abundance, as well as some vegetables.  Bright and beautiful annuals from the finest wholesalers will also be on sale.

The weekend starts with a Preview Party, Friday evening, April 28, from 5 PM - 7:30 PM.  Tickets are $20. This is a great opportunity to shop ahead of the crowd while sipping a glass of wine or special cocktail and enjoying a spread of delectable appetizers. The public sale begins on Saturday, April 29, from 9 AM – 1 PM; and continues on Sunday, April 30, from 11 AM – 1 PM.

We will have a Plant Advice Table and a Roaming Expert – Especially helpful if you need advice on native plant selections.
