I’m looking for specific plant. How will I know if it’s available?
Check the plant catalog for individual species and cultivars that are available. Please note that the list is subject to change, and many species sell out quickly, so we cannot guarantee availability of specific varieties. The plant catalog will be published in mid-April.

Do I have to carry my plants all the way to my car?​
No! Complimentary plant valet will be available for customers. This service allows customers to drop off plants in order to go get their vehicle without having to carry their purchase. Plant valet attendants can also assist with loading plants into vehicles.

I am interested in volunteering at Spring Plant Sale. What types of positions are available?
A variety of volunteer positions are available during the sale including plant valet, cashiers, plant division assistants and more. Spring Plant Sale volunteers receive 10 percent off plant purchases during the sale. Volunteer registration will open in mid-February.
