For those eager to bring the essence of fall blooming charm to their homes, don’t miss the Fall Heritage Plant Sale on Friday and Saturday, located on the Daves House Lawn just inside the Palace main gate. This annual plant sale features a diverse selection of locally grown plants from the Palace’s nursery yard, along with a wide variety of perennials, herbs, and other fall favorites. The Fall Heritage Plant Sale will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on both days, but be sure to arrive early for the best selection, as supplies are limited.
