NEW BERN —  What plants thrive best in Eastern North Carolina?

Tryon Palace and Craven County Agricultural Center will try to answer that question during the free program “Heritage Plants of ENC & Trade Specials” set for 10 a.m. to noon Saturday, Sept. 21, in Cullman Performance Hall, North Carolina History Center.

Tryon Palace Gardens and Greenhouse Manager Hadley Cheris and Craven County Master Gardener Jennifer Knight, community gardener and owner of design and build landscape firm Knightscapes Enterprise, will highlight plants that are best adapted to face the weather challenges of Eastern North Carolina, with a special focus on agricultural adaptability, according to Tryon Palace.

There will also be a preview of plants available at the Tryon Palace Fall Plant Sale  Oct. 11-12. During the plant sale on the Daves House Lawn inside the Palace main gate, the annual plant sale offers a selection of locally grown plants in the palace’s nursery yard, as well as a wide variety of perennials, herbs and other fall plants. Visitors can also purchase honey from the Tryon Palace bees. There is no fee.
