February 9th, 2018 by Corey A. Edwards

Come Celebrate Spring At Mobile Botanical GardensCome celebrate the return of spring! Mobile Botanical Gardens’ annual “Plantasia!” Spring Plant Sale and Providence Hospital’s Festival of Flowers both help to set the stage every March. Come revel in the natural beauty and great plant deals this March in Mobile, AL.

It may be hard to believe but warmer weather really is on the way. Spring is always such a relief after months of colder, greyer weather. Nothing uplifts the spirits – or your house or yard – like beautifully flowering plants.

The Mobile area explodes with celebrations of spring every March. Not only does nature begin its greening in earnest, it’s also time for the Festival of Flowers and Plantasia, the Spring Plant Sale Mobile Botanical Gardens.

Mobile Botanical Gardens are always good for a visit but that’s especially true in spring and fall when they hold their titanic plant sales!
