Plant Sale Hours
Every day – 10:00am – 4:00pm
- We have a permanent plant sale area fully stocked from May until late October ( situated below the pavilion). Members always receive a 10% discount.
- What makes our sale area so popular is the variety of unique and unusual plants we sell.
- Most are propagated in house by our volunteers, some also come from plants they grow in their own gardens.
- We propagate from cuttings, division and seed.
- You do not have to pay admission to the gardens to shop the sale area, just stop at admissions to let them know.
- All proceeds go back into the maintenance and development of the garden.
- Our Hardy Fuchsias are propagated from plants in the garden (and a few from volunteers mother plants) and are one of our best sellers.

- This is our first big fundraiser of the year, an availability list will be online closer to the sale dates.
- Admission to the gardens is always free during plant sales, so please take the time to walk around and explore.
- Depending on the weather, some plants may not be ready to sell during our spring sale, but not to worry our sale area is always open (during garden hours) so check back often as stock gets added weekly.

- This is a new plant sale for us this year, it will be part of our pollinator event (more details to come) we will be growing some new varieties of pollinator friendly plants.
- Pollinator week is June 21-27.
- Have a look in your garden-does it buzz with activity? Plant a diversity of crops-food, flowers, native and non-native plants to provide food and shelter for our bees and other pollinators. Plant them in your garden and on your balcony as a source for both pollen and nectar.
