Garden Fair and Plant Sale


General Information

A favorite of area gardeners from novice to expert, the FONA Garden Fair and Plant Sale is held each April at the US National Arboretum.

Our carefully curated offerings include rare and hard to find plants as well as tried and true favorites – you’re sure to find exactly what you’re looking for. In addition to our hand selected offerings, we’re proud to offer expert advice on-site to guide you through selecting plants for that tricky spot in your garden.

The FONA plant tent accepts credit cards, checks, and cash. All of our vendors will accept cash and checks, many but not all accept credit cards. Check out our stellar 2016 vendor list!
