The most anticipated event of the year for Minnesota gardeners who annually brave the vagaries of our spring weather to shop the finest selection of plants in the area. Unique plants and informative garden helpers give you new ideas for your garden. And supporting the Arboretum with each purchase makes this a not-to-be-missed event. Shop early for the best selection. Please be aware, many selections are limited. Visa/MasterCard/ Discover/AmEx credit card payment accepted.
The sale is held at the Arboretum Picnic Shelter area near the Marion Andrus Learning
Center. Some boxes are available, but bring your own containers and carts for easier
carrying. General Arboretum admission applies.
All proceeds go to support the work of the Arboretum.
