Hundreds of kinds of plants will be available for purchase from the Botanical Conservatory at our three-day public plant sale. You’ll find herbs, vegetable starts, and flowering perennials along with the usual great quality annuals, houseplants, mixed containers, hanging baskets, and bonsai. This year we are proud to offer a good selection of locally-grown native plants, as well. These beautiful and sturdy plants are locally grown and sold as a fundraiser to help support the Conservatory. Shop early for the best selection. Volunteers are available to assist with plant selection and loading. There is plenty of free parking.

Conservatory members can enjoy the preview sale on Thursday, May 11, 4:00-7:00 p.m. Memberships will be available for purchase that evening for those who want to join in order to get the first peek.  Learn more about gardening by shopping on Saturday and visiting with local garden advisors who will be ready to offer suggestions and answer questions.

We’re happy to announce that knowledgeable Plant Advisors have volunteered again this year to assist you in selecting plants for your conditions. Members of the Master Gardeners, Bonsai Club, and Indiana Native Plant and Wildflower Society will bring their expertise to share. Our U-Store area offers a claim check system where you can build your order and keep shopping. And volunteers will move large orders out to the parking lot to await you while you pay and drive up. There is plenty of free parking.

For more information, please call (260) 427-6440.
