Calling all garden lovers! The North Carolina Arboretum’s annual outdoor plant sale is back, and it’s bigger and better than ever. Revitalize your garden and home when you shop with us this spring.

On Friday and Saturday, May 27 and 28, we’ll be offering an assortment of plants grown right here in the Arboretum’s Production Greenhouse — including many of the beautiful plants featured in our seasonal landscapes. We’re also partnering with over 20 local growers and businesses for a tailgate-style market offering an even greater selection of annuals, perennials, natives, houseplants, art, planters and natural products. Come explore and shop the seasonal delights of spring to the sounds of live music. The sale will run from 10 a.m. – 3 p.m. daily.

The Plant Sale and Vendor Market will take place outdoors in the second bay of the Arboretum’s main parking lot. The Arboretum’s standard $16 parking fee applies for all non-members.
