Georgia Perennial Athens Area Shop & Sip - UGA Trial Garden Sale, UGA Hort Club and more!!

3/24/2024 8:48 am





Join your fellow plant-a-holics as we return to Athens again for the fabulous sales at the UGA Trial Garden and the UGA Hort Club. Dr. Armitage, who lives nearby, has offered to host a visit while we are in the neighborhood too. His small garden is packed with great ideas and plant material!


Afterwards, we'll grab a casual lunch nearby. From there on, you might want to visit the State Botanical Garden or a nearby nursery. Some options include Farm 441, Cofers Home & Garden Showplace, Sunrise Nursery (native plants), scheduling a visit to Piccadilly Farm (open by appointment) and more. We'll have a more thorough list ready for those interested.

While you are in the Athens area, think about getting discounted advance tickets for the 31st Piedmont Gardeners Tour of Gardens - Gardens of Oconee County (mostly Watkinsville) on April 20. We'll have a group outing for that too! More info on where to buy tickets and that are here: The Piedmont Gardeners


Interested in joining in or meeting up for these sales?  Let us know: Contact Liane. We'll update those who express interest with our more detailed plans and local info by email as we get closer.
