NEW ORLEANS – Today, the City of New Orleans announced the 2013 Tree and Plant sale, a collaborative effort of the Department of Parks and Parkways and Parkway Partners. The sale will be held on Saturday, March 2, 2013, from 8:00 a.m. to 12 noon at the Department of Parks and Parkways, 2829 Gentilly Blvd., New Orleans, LA 70122.

Favorite New Orleans plants, trees, flowering shrubs, perennials, hanging baskets, roses and citrus trees from local nurseries will be available for sale.
