Welcome to the Spring Garden Festival: 
It's a weekend garden party!

And it's plants, plants and plants all weekend! 

Springtime in Miami can only mean one thing: the Spring Plant Sale at Fairchild. For 37 years, we've been offering the best plant sale in South Florida. And this year will be even better! Be sure to arrive early to stock up on those special plants grown exclusively for you by our expert horticulturists. There will also be plant vendors selling hundreds of varieties and species of plants. It's a one-stop-DIY garden shopping experience.

Here are some of the plants available at the Spring Plant Sale.
