Annual Fall Plant Sale Will Be First Major Public Event at Mounts Since Last March with Strict Health & Safety Guidelines

(West Palm Beach, FL – November 4, 2020) Mounts Botanical Garden, Palm Beach County's oldest and largest botanical garden, is rescheduling its first major public event since the onslaught of the  COVID-19 pandemic last March. Originally set for this weekend, the always popular PLANT-A-PALOOZA, the annual fall plant sale, will now be held November 14-15 due to threatening forecasts of heavy wind and rain with South Florida under Hurricane Eta's cone of uncertainty.

"We are sorry to move back our popular plant sale one week, but the health and safety of our visitors, vendors and staff is always our paramount priority," says Mounts Curator Director Rochelle Wolberg. "Of course, with the current COVID pandemic, we're also adhering to Palm Beach County and CDC requirements and guidelines, so our delayed Plant-A-Palooza will still be held at reduced capacity. We are also requesting that all tickets be purchased in advance through www.mounts.org. Previously purchased tickets are still valid."

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. For example, the Palm Beach Chapter of the Rare Fruit Council will have its own booth promoting Fruitilizer, a fertilizer specially formulated for South Florida soils.

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.

"The Mounts Nursery and Vintage Thrift Shop will also be open November 14-15 with a great variety of plants and unique treasures for the home and garden," adds Wolberg.
