It’s time once again to support the Garden at the annual benefit plant sale!

WHAT YOU WILL FIND: The Garden offers an impressive selection of herbs, specialty annuals, vegetables, sun and shade perennials, ornamental grasses, shrubs, conifers, roses, vines, trees, and the best selection of heirloom vegetables, native plants and drought tolerant plants! You'll find plants for every situation, including gifts and high-altitude gardening. Most of the plants are grown by local nurseries and many of the annuals and vegetables are grown here in our own greenhouses! This annual plant sale and fundraiser is always a great way to welcome the planting season!

We also offer a variety of organic gardening products such as fertilizers, sprays, and coco-fiber that when mixed into your garden or container soil, aids with water retention.

EXPERTS ON HAND: Representatives from Utah Master Gardeners will be on hand to answer questions as well as Slow Food Utah. With our Garden staff and volunteers, there will be plenty of qualified help to answer your plant and gardening questions.

WHERE: The Plant Sale Amphitheatre this year. From the four-way stop sign at Chipeta and Wakara Way, turn left (or North) and follow the signs.

WHAT TO BRING: If you have your own small wagon, bring it! We have a few shopping carts and plenty of cardboard plant trays.

PARKING: Parking is available in lot #75 outside the sale entrance and in lot #80 for overflow parking. To ease any inconvenience, Garden staff will operate a passenger shuttle from the sale entrance to overflow lots (see map) from 1pm Friday as long as needed. We also protect a “loading only” area near the sale entrance/checkout for loading plants after you are able to collect your vehicle. Note too that there are few handicapped parking stalls in this particular University lot.
