38th Annual Plant Sale Fundraiser

11 May

05-12-2017 to 05-13-2017 – The 38th Annual Spring Plant Sale Fundraiser at Red Butte Garden is a unique event providing quality plant products for your home and garden while supporting Red Butte Garden and its programs. This sale is recognized as the best place to purchase quality plants that will grow well in our climate, as well as a source for unusual species that are difficult to find. Garden staff and volunteers will be available to answer your plant and gardening questions.

At the sale, you will find an impressive selection of herbs, specialty annuals, sun and shade-loving perennials, groundcovers, ornamental grasses, shrubs, conifers, own-root roses, vines, trees, heirloom and hybrid vegetables, native plants, and drought tolerant plants.

The extensive vegetable selection includes over 180 different varieties, including 60 different tomato cultivars, 32 different peppers (sweet & hot), 21 pumpkin and squash varieties, and a wide range of greens. At least 95 different vegetables are heirlooms. There will also be a large variety of vegetables that can be grown in small areas including container gardens.

Plants found at the sale are reasonably priced and hardy because most are grown by local nurseries, and many vegetables and annuals are grown on-site in our greenhouses. Nine months before the sale, we select and order seeds, which are then sown and tended by staff and volunteers.

The sale will be held in the Red Butte Garden Amphitheatre and is easily accessed from the four-way stop sign at Chipeta and Wakara Way, turn left (or North) and follow the signs.
