We anticipate a high volume of traffic to our online store on Friday. Here are a few helpful tips to keep in mind: 

  • Sale selections are limited and sell quickly; items in your cart are not confirmed until the purchase is complete. Please consider making multiple purchases if you have a long shopping list. 
  • At checkout, enter your email address and click “CONTINUE AS GUEST”. Existing Gardens membership login details will not work. 
  • If you would like to create an account before the sale, please register on our online store. If you created an account for last May’s online Spring Plant Sale or for an online purchase through The Shop at the Gardens, you can use those login credentials.
  • If you receive a “Page Not Available” error, refresh the page or open in a new tab.
