PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – Tis the season so, if you’re going to decorate, you’ve got to get going. Just in time, this weekend there are all kinds of holiday sales at area gardens to help you deck the halls.

From Bartram’s Garden to the Tyler Arboretum, the Scott Arboretum and Meadowbrook Farm to the Brandywine River Museum, you’ll find loads of lovely ways to get your home spruced up (or pined up, or holly-ed up!) inside and out.

Clink the links to find events where you can buy bags of beautiful greens, learn to make a wreath, or just buy one of the lush, lovely, long-lasting wreaths, garlands or centerpieces already crafted by people with more time or talent than you or I may have.

At the Brandywine River Museum, this weekend is the start of their handmade holiday critter ornament sale – they’re all crafted of natural materials and completely adorable.

After Saturday and Sunday, you’ll find these one-of-a-kind ornaments in their gift shop while they last.

All of these events are a great way to fill your home with the scents and accents of the season, as you help fill the coffers of these great gardens so they can keep things growing next year.
