FONA Garden Fair



Friends of the National Arboretum (FONA) Garden Fair and Plant Sale

Member Hours: Friday, April 27, 10 AM to 1 PM*
Public Hours: Friday, April 27, 1 PM to 4 PM and Saturday, April 28, 9 AM to 4 PM
One of the largest garden fairs in the area, the FONA garden fair and plant sale will have tons of landscaping plants, houseplants, edibles, garden crafts, and other items from local and national wholesale growers. Plus, the azaleas will be in bloom and you will want to bring your camera to take a walk among the Arboretum's collections.

This year’s sale also includes more than 600 books on horticulture, garden design and designers, landscape architecture and garden travel from the library of longtime FONA board member and garden designer Sally Boasberg, who died last month.

The sale is at the New York Avenue entrance at 3501 New York Avenue NE, Washington, DC 20002.

Washington Gardener Magazine will be there once again. We'll have current and back issues for sale as well as being able to sign you up for subscriptions and take your renewals. We'll also have FREE seeds to give out while supplies last.
More details about the event are here: http://www.fona.org/

*Note that you can sign up right on-site and come in as a FONA member, so don't let the "member hours" dissuade you from attending on the first morning. Members get first pick and enjoy some discounts.


UPDATE: Forgot to post that FONA members get 10% off new subscriptions to Washington Gardener Magazine when done at the FONA Garden Fair -- $18 instead of the normal $20.
