You'll find 70 varieties of tomatoes and 30 types of peppers at the Tilth Alliance's May Edible Plant Sale. Tilth Alliance via Facebook

Spring has sprung, which means now is the best time to fill your garden—or your windowsill—with new plant life. Below, we've rounded up all the places to find native seasonal plants (like the Seattle Audubon Society's 23rd Annual Spring Plant Sale), plants you can eat (like the Tilth Alliance's May Edible Plant Sale), bright blooms (like the Evergreen Chrysanthemum Society's Mum Plant Sale), and more, which you can also find on our spring plants calendar.
