BUFFALO, N.Y. — Looking for a way to celebrate with your mom this weekend? The Buffalo and Erie County Botanical Gardens will hold a "One-Stop, Mom-Shop" plant and vendor sale on Saturday to celebrate Mother's Day weekend.
This brand new event is the first weekend of plant sales taking place at the gardens.

While there, people can purchase a ticket to visit the Botanical Gardens conservatory and take a free, professional "Mommy and Me" photo inside the gardens. The mini-shoots are available with admission from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m.
There will also be plenty to eat. Lavins Food Truck, Polish Villa, and The Blend will be on site from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The plant sale will also feature the popular Bulb Sale, where people can buy recycled bulbs from the Spring Flower Exhibit. There will also be a unique local compost blend on sale at the event that is made from manure and materials from the Buffalo Zoo, seaweed, fruits, vegetables, bakery waste, flowers, brewery waste, distillery waste, and wood chips.
Shoppers should bring their own bags and/or boxes to transport plants in an effort to eliminate waste. A limited number of reusable bags will be available for purchase.
