Welcome fall as you plan your spring garden

Outdoors: There’s live music; a harvest market; cider, wine, and beer to purchase; and the amazing gourd mountain for selfies. Many local vendors will offer baked goods, honey, roasted nuts, fresh jams, and much more.

Fall Bulb Festival Hay Maze

Kids: Amid live music, children of all ages can admire the gourd mountain, find their way around the straw-bale maze, and participate in family activities.

Indoors: Buy bulbs to plant now, and your spring is guaranteed to be alive with color. 250+ varieties of daffodils, tulips, crocus, and specialty bulbs tempt gardeners at the annual Bulb Sale. Buy mums, asters, peonies, potted amaryllis, paperwhite narcissus, and “Bulb Boost,” too. Expert staff are on hand to answer questions and offer tips. All proceeds benefit the Chicago Botanic Garden. The sale is presented by the Woman’s Board of the Chicago Horticultural Society.
