March Mart Plant Sale

March Mart


2015 March Mart Dates To Be Announced


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 amateurs and experts alike. March Mart features a huge selection, more than 2,000 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.

This event is conducted by hundreds of volunteers and more than 120 experts 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.
