HOUSTON -

You can take a piece of Hermann Park home with you this weekend!

All the flower beds of the Houston Garden Center need to be cleared out, so the plants are being sold for $2 each. The sale started Friday and continues Saturday.

"We are inviting gardeners in Houston to find new homes for the many plants that have made the Houston Garden Center such a wonderful site for so many years," said Joe Turner, director of the Houston Parks and Recreation Department.

"We know that over the years the gardens have been the backdrop for many a wedding, family outing or gardeners stroll. We hope that Houston gardeners will help preserve some of those memories by providing new homes for the plants and take a bit of Hermann Park home with them," said Turner.

Gardeners interested in participating in the sale will need to dig and transport their own plants on each day of the sale. You must bring your own gloves, shovels, hand trowels, wheelbarrows and containers for the plants. Pick axes, axes, or power towels will not be allowed.

Plants are priced at $2 each plant. It's a cash-only sale. No checks, money orders, debit or credit cards will be accepted.

Only shrubs and perennials inside the fenced area of the Houston Garden Center are included in this sale. Trees, signs, bricks, plaques, soil, etc. will not be sold.

The sale runs from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday at the Houston Garden Center located at 1500 Hermann Drive.
