This weekend, April 27 and 28, the United States National Arboretum welcomes one and all to its annual Garden Fair and Plant Sale, as well as their Spring Festival. You can find wonderful old standbys, as well as rare plants you may not find anywhere else. The helpful volunteers and Arboretum staff can also help you find a plant that is a good match for your not-quite-green thumb.
The Spring Festival will have all manner of vendors: stationary, skin care, jewelry and more, as well as all manner of delicious food trucks. You can go to www.fona.org/gardenfair/ for more information.
