Extend the growing season by learning about and purchasing cool-season plants and vegetables at Brucemore’s Cool-Season Plant Sale to be held April 10 and 11 from 12:00 to 6:30 p.m. The plant sale will be held in the 1915 Lord & Burnham Greenhouse located near the center of the Brucemore estate.

“Many annual plants and vegetables benefit from cool-season growth,” said Brucemore’s Head Gardener David Morton. “The cool-season plant sale is a great opportunity for visitors to kick off the growing season early.”

A variety of cool-season plants will be for sale, including broccoli, cabbages, snapdragons, lettuce, and spinach. Brucemore will also sell a few varieties of perennials and indoor plants that can be placed in the garden when warmer temperatures arrive. Cool-season plant sale prices range from $2.50 to $15.00 with all the proceeds benefiting garden and landscape rehabilitation projects at Brucemore. The garden staff will be on hand to provide expert advice on the selection, placement, and care of plants. The Summer Plant Sale will be held on May 10 from 9:00 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., featuring Brucemore “heritage” plants, annuals, perennials, hanging baskets, herbs, and heirloom vegetables.

Experience Brucemore, an unparalleled blend of tradition and culture, located at 2160 Linden Drive SE, Cedar Rapids, Iowa. At the heart of the historic 26-acre estate stands a nineteenth-century mansion filled with the stories of three Cedar Rapids families.  Concerts, theater, programs, and tours enliven the site and celebrate the heritage of a community.  For more information, call (319) 362-7375 or visit www.brucemore.org.
