March Mart, an annual fundraising event held each March, is sponsored by The Mercer Society, a nonprofit 501(c)(3) volunteer organization. The plant sale proceeds support special projects and educational programs at Mercer.
One of the Texas Gulf Coast area’s largest and most anticipated horticultural events, the sale attracts amateur and expert gardeners alike. March Mart features more than 1,000 varieties of quality plants rarely found at local retail nurseries. Exhibits by local garden clubs and organizations allow gardeners with similar interests to share ideas and information.
The event is conducted by hundreds of volunteers and experts who will be on hand to answer horticultural and gardening questions. Throughout the year, dozens of volunteers labor to select the plants sold at March Mart, raising many of the plants from seeds, plugs, or cuttings, often from Mercer’s own plant collections.
