Plant sale purchases support operation of the William Root House Museum & Gardens in downtown Marietta.
MARIETTA - A beloved Marietta tradition, the annual Root House Plant Sale returns on April 23rd. This unique sale offers shoppers a wide selection of vintage and native Georgia plants, many of which can be found growing in the Root House gardens.
The gardens at the Root House have been reconstructed to reflect the gardening practices of the mid-19th century. All the vegetables, herbs, fruit trees, decorative flowers, and blooming shrubs found in the garden have been researched for availability in Georgia during the 1850s.
This year, in addition to plants, our Gift Shop will also have a variety of seeds and gardening books available for purchase, as well as small batch botanical products including lotions, soaps, bath teas, and bath soaks.
Availability is limited and all plants are sold first-come, first-served, so plan to arrive right at 9:00am for the best selection.

ABOUT THE WILLIAM ROOT HOUSE: Constructed in 1845, the William Root House is one of the oldest homes remaining in the Atlanta area. Though the home and grounds have been meticulously restored to their 1860 appearance, modern touchscreens and interactive displays have been added to help tell the story of the Root family.
