Did you know fall is the best time of the year to plant trees?
If not, learn all about it at Saturday's Fall Plant Sale at Stephen F. Austin's Native Plant Center.
The annual sale stocks up on East Texas hardy trees. Other desirable plants will be there as staff cleans out numerous greenhouses.
"I think we have one of the best inventories of plants that we've ever had at plant sales," said Dr. David Creech, a Regents professor and a professor emeritus. "It's hard for me to believe we've been at this since 1986, and it's become such a popular event in our region. I think we're featuring almost 300 different kinds of plants, multiples, of course. And they're all arranged alphabetically, and we kind of specialize in Texas tough durable plants."
While visiting the plant sale be sure and check out progress on the Ina Brundrette Conservation Education Center, now under construction.
The plant sale goes from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday.
