Each spring for over 65 years, Denver Botanic Gardens has hosted a sale of plants, seeds, bulbs and garden supplies. Hundreds of volunteers and staff members commit their time to selecting plant varieties ranging from the very common to the very obscure for Front Range residents to purchase.
Spring Plant Sale takes place on Friday and Saturday, May 6-7, 2016 from 8 a.m. - 5 p.m. Admission is free! Get here early to get the best pick of the plants, and don’t forget to bring a wagon to haul them around.
It’s easy to find plants to buy. Nearly every grocery store and hardware store has at least a rack or two available as the days grow longer and sunnier. So why head all the way to York Street for the two-day Spring Plant Sale at the Gardens?
Our horticulturists and trained volunteers will be onsite throughout the sale to give advice and answer your questions. Trying something new? Our team can help to you determine where to plant, how to feed, and how to care for your new flora.
Find Unique Plants
Sure, we’ll have lots of standard plants for sale. But you’ll also find many plants at the Gardens you might not find anywhere else in the region. Some of these are grown right here at the Gardens!
Something For Everyone

Support the Gardens
Part of our core mission is to connect people with plants, and while the Spring Plant Sale does that in a very literal sense, it also supports the Gardens’ other endeavors.
Whether you have a large vegetable garden, well-manicured landscaping, containers on the porch or a sunny window in your home, we have something for you at the Spring Plant Sale.
