Plants are the best quality at the best prices: unusually choice specimens, many rare varieties and native plants, handpicked and selected. See below for just a few examples!
Will you have X? (naming a specific plant)
YES, we will have that or something very similar to it. Come to the sale; you’ll be sure to find what you want. There will be a huge selection.
Will there be lots to choose from during the Public Hours?
YES! There will be thousands of first-rate plants; we're constantly replenishing our stock, but for the BEST selection--come to the Preview Party, or join and come to the Members hours.
How do I pay? Can I use credit cards?
All major credit cards, cash, or checks are accepted in the main Plant Sale area--i.e. the plants offered by Tower Hill; however many of the specialty vendors and plant societies cannot accept credit cards, so be prepared with cash or check.
What about the Preview Party and Members Only Hours?
The Preview Party is a ticketed event ($35 Members/$45 Non-members) that takes place on Friday night, May 31, at 5:30 pm. Only persons who purchase a ticket may buy plants that evening, and also enjoy delicious food from Pepper's Fine Catering. Participating vendors will also sell plants and garden accessories on Friday night, and special guest Roger Swain will hold a question & answer session.
On the day of the Plant Sale, Saturday, June 1, only Tower Hill Members may buy from 9am-11am, but you can join the Garden on the spot (annual membership starts at $55) and gain 9am admission. The general public will be allowed entry at 11am, and non-members will pay a $5 per car entrance fee.
