New Location, Bigger Inventory and Free Admission Makes 50th Arboretum Plant Sale Better Than Ever!

Mother's Day weekend has always been a very special and busy time at the Minnesota Landscape Arboretum! To meet the needs of visitors coming to see the incredible spring gardens, have brunch and shop the Auxiliary Plant Sale, there's a new plan that should suit visitors well.

The 50th Auxiliary Plant Sale is now located at the Red Barn Farm, next to the Tashjian Bee Center, 3210 W. 82nd St., where parking and space is plentiful, allowing the Auxiliary to triple the size of the sale. Entering off West 82nd Street also means bypassing the usual Arboretum gatehouse - and best of all, there is no admission charge for the sale!

With more than 1,000 varieties, there will be a stellar selection of sun and shade plants, curated grasses, heirloom vegetables, plentiful herbs, native Minnesota plant species and University of Minnesota introductions. Master Gardeners will be on hand to assist shoppers who have questions. Catalogs will be available for $1 at the gatehouse and at Oswald Visitor Center prior to the sale.

All proceeds go to support the work of the Arboretum.

On Sale Now!

To celebrate the upcoming 50th Anniversary of the Arboretum Auxiliary and to support their fundraising efforts, a new cookbook has been published. The cookbook contains over 250 recipes, including some of the favorite recipes from the Arboretum Tea Room. Cookbooks are only $15. To purchase a cookbook now, complete an order form. The cookbook will also be available for purchase at the Auxiliary Holiday Sale Dec. 2-4.
