plant sale logoPlant Sale News

Running an event the size of The Friends Annual Plant Sale (Friday, April 30 and Saturday, May 1) takes lots of advance planning and work. This year is no different.

Our Plant Sale Page has been activated and will be updated regularly with articles and videos about the plants and activities at the Plant Sale. Check out the first video, a slideshow past Plant Sales.

Selecting and ordering the thousands of plants is well under way. These plants are being added daily to our On-lin Plant List, so you will want to check it out regularly and start your plans for the events to come.
