35TH ANNUAL SPRING PLANT SALE, RED BUTTE GARDEN, Friday, May 9, 1 p.m. to 8 p.m. for Garden members, Saturday, May 10, 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. for non-members

Gardeners of the valley, unite! The good people at Red Butte Garden are gathering a slew of professional green-thumbs from gardens and greenhouses in Utah (as well as their own experts, of course) to guide both novices and backyard beginners through the annual spring plant sale. The offerings include herbs, annuals, veggies, ornamental grasses, shrubs, trees, roses and all manner of drought-resistant goodies. Folks from Slow Food Utah will be there as well, to help you determine the best edible plants to grow at your pad. Also available is everything you need to tend to your plants--organic fertilizers and the like. Not only will you find everything you need to sate any need for getting in touch with the Earth, even just your own small piece of it--you'll also help raise some funds for Red Butte in the process.
