Over 10,000 curated selections of new and unusual perennials and annuals, native
Ohio plants, heirloom and organic vegetables and herbs can be found at the
Chadwick Arboretum & Learning Gardens annual Spring Plant Sale.
All plants are chosen to provide a wide variety of plants with time-tested and new
cultivars, of the highest quality, and with the most successful growth potential for
growing conditions in Ohio. Plus, Chadwick Arboretum Horticulturists and the
Franklin County Extension Master Gardener Volunteers will answer garden related
questions about edible and ornamental plants.
Alongside a wide variety of perennials and annuals, vegetables and herbs, visitors
will find colorful hanging baskets, hypertufa planters, planted and unplanted, and
rain garden plants. Ohio State University student horticulturist organizations will
sell vegetables and the Plant Pathology Graduate Students Association will offer
native plants for sale.
