Strut your stuff and come to the red carpet event that opens this year's gardening season: Denver Botanic Gardens' Spring Plant Sale.

All you wonderful VIP’s will enter through the new fabulous group entrance and be greeted by one of our 500 dedicated volunteers. Don’t forget to strike a pose in our gift shop and stock up on all your gardening needs.

Then, sashay on up to all 12 plant divisions that not only offer great plants, but, each division provides advice from our knowledgeable volunteers or industry professionals, including the Gardens’ own rock star horticultural staff.

Keep an eye out for this year’s plant division stars: Fruits, Berries, Vegetables, Herbs; Grown at the Gardens, Water-Smart and our newest division “Container Gardening.” This division will feature easy, grab-and-go kits for succulent, shade and sun containers.

Famished or overwhelmed? Nothing that an Izze or panini can't fix. Stop by the Gardens newest café, Offshoots or stroll to the Monet deck for something on the grill.

After hitting all these hot spots, rock it out in the check-out area. Entertainment provided during peak times of the Plant Sale and 16 cashier stations will be on hand to help.

Meet your driver on the way out, at Plant Valet, since we all know that anybody that is somebody is sure to have their plants picked-up, rather than breaking a sweat and carrying their purchases to the car. Here is further information on this fabulous event and the  Plant Sale Preview Party.

 Oh, and don’t forget to brush up on the below fashion tips as I am sure you do not want to make a Plant Sale faux paux. Fashion Tips:

  1. Bring the best accessory of them all: a wagon or cart that can be loaded with all gardening essentials.
  2.  Be sure to dress to impress and wear your gardening hats, sunscreen and sneaks.
