Get the wheelbarrows ready. Some people in Boise wait with bated breath for the yearly spring plant sale at the Idaho Botanical Garden. Members of IBG get first pick the day before the sale opens to the public, but there is always plenty of greenery left to haul off by means of buckets, barrels and crates. All the plant starts begin to bloom under the supervised care of staff at the gardens and are grown on site in nurseries and greenhouses. The profits from the plant sale go back to growing and maintaining the horticulture department at Boise State.
