The 2018 Friends Plant Sale

What’s so great about our Annual Plant Sale? Just about everything! Not only is it one of the biggest plant sales in the tristate area, it’s also an important fundraiser. Just think, by volunteering at the sale and shopping for thousands of gorgeous plants you are helping ensure that the Friends will continue to sponsor the many popular horticultural programs hosted at the Arboretum throughout the year. How great is that?

So, block your calendar for May 4–6 and let your friends and neighbors know by sending them this link to our Plant Sale page ( Starting in April, you’ll find a list of hundreds of different vegetables, herbs, annuals and tropicals, perennials, trees, and shrubs. You’ll also find planting recommendations from our plant experts and links to our growers. And, to really get involved, learn more about our plants, and have lots of fun, volunteer to help at the sale by registering online at the link on the right.

The weekend of the sale, we’ll again offer exclusive shopping to our members from 4:00 – 7:00 pm on Friday, May 4th This year we're again offering super exclusive access to our members with a special event featuring a talk on herbs and light refreshments starting at 2 pm.  See the Events page for details and to sign up. The plant sale will be open to the public that weekend between 9:00 am – 5:00 pm on both Saturday and Sunday, with plant advisors on hand throughout to help with recommendations of what will work best in your garden.

We’re all looking forward to seeing you at the sale!
