Plant Sale 2018

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 ( On our website 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. Plus, you’ll be able to 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. The plant sale will be open to the public that weekend between 9:00 am – 3:00 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!
Ilona Ontscherenki, for the entire Plant Sale Team
