Like the Mail, Albuquerque Garden Clubbers bring the annual Plant Sale to Albuquerqueans, no matter the weather. Since their first plant sale, 1973, inauspicious as it was, Garden Council Garden Clubs have offered the best plants for Albuquerque to three generations of Albuquerque gardeners. For many Albuquerqueans, the Garden Center Plant Sale is an annual Pilgrimage.
Don’t Miss This Sale!
