FONA Plant Sale & Garden Fair at the National Arboretum
Spring has finally sprung, and it’s just in time for the Friends of the National Arboretum (FONA) Annual Garden Fair, April 25-26 at the National Arboretum. Held in conjunction with Arbor Day, FONA’s plant sale and garden fair is continually recognized for its premier selection of new, rare and exotic plants that are best suited for growing in the Washington, D.C. area.
Whether you are a seasoned gardener, a plant novice or just looking to spruce up your apartment balcony, each year, the National Arboretum’s top plant experts are on site to provide skilled advice and ensure customers walk away with the plants best suited for their individual gardening interests.
