Well, this one really sucks, however inevitable it may have been.

Harry P. Leu Gardens announced Thursday it has canceled its annual plant sale, previously scheduled for Saturday and Sunday, presumably due to concerns over the coronavirus pandemic.

In a Facebook post and on their website, at least as of 10:30 a.m. Friday, the note says simply, "Plant Sale has been canceled." We hope the city-owned park can reschedule the event soon, bringing back the growers and vendors (Ed. note: and plant parents!) who depend on it each year.
