The weather was made to order. The early bird Friends of the Arboretum shoppers started forming the line at 8:00 AM for the 9:00 AM opening. We are so appreciative of the over 400 people who came to shop.  Boxes and carts were rapidly filled and by noon only a few plants were left.  The Pitt County Master Gardeners worked for months to get all of the plants looking great and ready to sell.  Remember: Same time next year- the Saturday after Mother's Day.  You may want to consider becoming a Friend and being able to shop early for the best selections.
