Nebraska Statewide Arboretum Presents Spring Affair April 27-28
The Nebraska Statewide Arboretum (plantnebraska.org) is excited to announce its Spring Affair, the Midwest’s largest plant sale and gardening event, will be held April 27-28. One of the longest-running plant events in the nation, 2018 will mark its 32nd anniversary.
Sponsored by the Nebraska Statewide Arboretum, Spring Affair offers and promotes regional plants. Held at the Lancaster Event Center, more than 700 varieties of plants will be available, including perennials, herbs, and grasses from Bluebird Nursery, Inc. of Clarkson, NE, and trees and shrubs from the Arboretum. All of the plants are selected for regional sustainability, uniqueness, and demand.
For those who wish to preview the plant selection, the Spring Affair Preview Party will take place on the evening of Friday, April 27. This ticketed event, with a meal served from 6-8 p.m. and plant sale 6-9 p.m., gives plant lovers a chance to enjoy a sit-down meal with gardening friends, live music and a chance to purchase plants with a wine glass in one hand and a basket in the other, before the Saturday sale. Then, on Saturday, April 28 from 9 a.m. – 2 p.m. the sale will be open to the public, with guests enjoying free parking and admission.
