Thefirst March Mart plant sale took place 37 years ago as a means to raise fundsfor the arboretum. The first sale consisted of donated plants that local gardenclub members dug up from their yards and delivered in old coffee cans or milkcartons. One of the largest plant sales in Texas, this two-day sale now offersapproximately 1,200 species of plants including annuals and perennials, fruittrees, gingers, herbs, natives, roses, shade plants, trees and shrubs,tropicals, vegetables, and vines.
