What started as a friendly plant swap in 1960 has grown to be the Civic Garden Center’s largest fundraiser. The Friday night preview party — dubbed the “best little plant party in town” — features dinner by the bite, wine, beer, a silent auction, live entertainment and first pick of the center’s plants. The remainder of the weekend sale is open to the public. Bring a wagon, basket or cart to carry your plants home; choose from thousands of flowers, shrubs, trees, herbs, veggies and rare and unusual finds. Proceeds benefit Civic Garden Center community programs.


6-9 p.m. Friday; 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday; 11 a.m.-3 p.m. Sunday. $75-$225 preview party; free admission to sale. Civic Garden Center, Hauck Botanic Garden, 2715 Reading Road, Avondale, civicgardencenter.org.
