May: Arboretum Annual Plant Sale
This May, the Arboretum hosted its Annual Plant Sale. It was a huge success! The event was scheduled to open at 9:00 am, but people were so excited about the sale that they came in 20 minutes early! By 9:15 there was a long line of eager gardeners waiting in the checkout line. The plant selection included annuals, perennials, desert plants, herbs, and native plants brought in by the South Plains Native Plant Society.
