LAHARPE ? TLC Garden Center plans to capitalize on the infamy of the internet?s hottest meme of the summer by hosting its ?Area 51 Alien Plant Sale? from 4 to 8 pm. Friday.
The sale features unusual plants like carnivorous fly traps, twisted succulents and seeds to kick-start your plans for world domination by growing an alien garden.
TLC owner Savannah Flory said the otherworldly theme was inspired by a controversial Facebook event that encouraged millions of people to storm a military zone in Nevada. That event started as a joke that caught the attention of millions of fans ? and the government ? and was canceled for safety concerns.
