The North Fulton Master Gardeners will officially kick off the spring planting season with its annual Garden Faire. 

Just like in years' past, the event will be held on the grounds of Bulloch Hall, and will offer residents a one-stop shop for everything needed to make their gardening dreams a success.

This year’s Faire will take place on Saturday, April 26 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m., rain or shine. This free gardening event will have something for every level of gardener — from novice to seasoned. 

The event will feature: 
  • A variety of Perennials and Annuals
  • Garden and specialty vendors
  • Garden art and pottery
  • The “Ask a Master Gardener” Booth: Bring your gardening questions! Our experts will be happy to provide advice on any topic of interest.
  • Pass-Along Plant Sale: Throughout the winter months, Master Gardeners have nurtured seedlings and root cuttings, divided rhizomes, landscaped volunteer plants, and much more. The plants available at the Pass-Along Plant Sale are strong, healthy, inexpensive, and ready for a new home.
  • The Fleatique, which will boast all types of gently used household goods, books, and garden items. 
The event will also include the following demonstrations in the garden:
  • 10:30 a.m.: "Heavenly Hellebores" by Andrea Towers & Carol Brooks, North Fulton Master Gardeners.
  • Noon: "Flower Arrangements Right from Your Garden" by Annette Joseph,  Author of Picture Perfect Parties and a regular on the Today Show.
  • 1:30 p.m.: "Lazy Beekeeping" Demo and Book Signing by Julia Mahood, Georgia Master Beekeeper. 
Residents who plan to attend also won't have to worry about breakfast or lunch that day. The annual Faire will include a bake sale and coffee. For those who prefer to have lunch, Harry's Farmers Market will have pulled-pork barbecue and a vegetarian option available. 

Bulloch Hall sits at 180 Bulloch Avenue and more information about the venue can be found on its website.
