The Root House Museum & Garden will be hosting their annual Root House Plant Sale on Saturday, April 29, 2017, from 10am to 2pm. As always, 100% of the profits from the plant sale benefit the museum. The Root House was built circa 1845 for Hannah and William Root, early settlers of Marietta. Mr. Root was one of Marietta’s earliest merchants and its first druggist. After the house was documented as one of Marietta’s oldest buildings, preservation efforts began, and in 1989, Cobb Landmarks & Historical Society relocated and restored the house for public display. The Plant Sale helps support maintenance of the historic house and gardens.
During the plant sale, customers can choose from a wide variety of vintage, native, and deer-resistant plants. The Plant Sale is always well-attended, and plants normally sell out quickly, so customers are encouraged you to arrive as soon as the sale begins at 10:00 am. The museum will also be offering free admission during the Plant Sale, so visitors are encouraged to tour the house and gardens before or after they make their purchases.
