Your plants didn’t make it through the winter frost, so you need to get some new ones for the spring. You might think you need to set aside a lot of cash to replenish your garden, but you don’t need to spend the big bucks this year. Instead, attend the South Texas Botanical Gardens and Nature Center’s annual Big Bloom mega plant sale on April 1. Find some quality blooms at great prices at this sale.
The Big Bloom mega sale isn’t your typical plant sale. Instead, it is an event. Events usually cost a lot of money, but that isn’t the case with the Big Bloom sale. Just hand over a dollar, and you can get inside.
That dollar won’t just get you access to the plants, either. You can also take a tour of the gardens if you attend this event.
After you finish your tour, come back to the sale and browse through orchids, plumeria, roses, herbs, tomatoes, and more. If you like a plant, there is a very good chance it will be available at this sale. Just make sure you get there early. With over 5,000 people expected to attend, you need to stake your claim on your favorite plants before they get snatched away. If you’re a member of the gardens, you can start shopping at 8 a.m. Nonmembers can get in at 9 a.m.
The Big Bloom isn’t just a plant sale. You can also enjoy parrot talks, interactive butterfly releases, ladybug releases, reptile shows, and more. In addition, there will be nature trail walk-and-talks, where you can learn a lot about nature. With so many events, you can bring your kids along, as well. They will have as much fun as you do.
Picking out the perfect plants is the easy part. Getting them home is another matter entirely. Fortunately, you can get a roomy Kia from Mike Shaw Kia in Corpus Christi, Texas. That will make it easy to haul all of your plants home. New Kias come with a 10-year, 100,000-mile warranty, so shop with confidence at this dealership.
