Fall Plant Sale: Fall is for Planting!

Trays of plants for sale set out on long tables outdoors at our Fall Plant Sale.

Did you know fall is the best time to plant North Carolina’s wonderful native perennials, shrubs, trees, ferns, and grasses in your home garden? Planting in the fall gives time for plants to establish their root systems prior to the growing season. Join us for our Fall Plant Sale to find new beauties for your landscape!

See a draft list of species that we hope to have available at the beginning of the sale. This list is subject to change, as species may be pulled from the list for unforeseen reasons prior to the sale. Additionally, some species are limited in quantity and may sell out early, and some species may be added to this list prior to the sale.

Drop by the Ritchie Bell Seminar Room during the Fall Plant Sale to find a wide selection of books on horticulture, plant identification, native plants, herbs, garden history, landscaping, gardening ideas, and design, all at bargain prices. Donated by members and kind supporters of the Garden, many of these books are duplicates of our library’s collection. Sales of this wonderful array of books will support our library fund.
