EntSun News/10842316
WEST PALM BEACH, Fla. - EntSun -- (West Palm Beach, FL – October 9, 2020) Mounts Botanical Garden, Palm Beach County's oldest and largest botanical garden, today announced its first major public event since the onslaught of the  COVID-19 pandemic last  March. The always popular PLANT-A-PALOOZA, the annual fall plant sale, returns to Mounts over the November 7-8 weekend.

"We have reimagined our fall plant sale for today's new normal," says said Mounts Curator Director Rochelle Wolberg. "Public health and safety are our top priorities. Because we're adhering to Palm Beach County and CDC requirements and guidelines, the upcoming sale will be held at reduced capacity. We are also requesting that all tickets be purchased in advance through www.mounts.org."

Sponsored by the Palm Beach Chapter of the Florida Nursery, Growers and Landscape Association, the fall plant sale will feature more than 30 vendors, offering a wide range of plants, shrubs, trees, garden furniture & accessories, baskets, and fine crafts, all spread throughout the Garden. Visitors can stroll and shop in a socially distanced, relaxed environment, while looking for Bonsai, bamboo, bromeliads, butterfly plants, citrus, ferns, Florida natives, flowering trees, ginger, heliconia, orchids & supplies, pitcher plants, plumeria, roses, succulents, vines and more.
