Celebrate gardening season at Desert Botanical Garden’s Fall Plant Sale. As temperatures cool down, fall is the perfect time for upgrading your home landscape with new desert plants. Choose from more than 30,000 plants including cactus, succulents, trees, shrubs, groundcover, perennials, herbs/veggies and other oddities. Garden volunteers and staff horticulturists will answer questions and assist in plant selections. Specimen-sized plants and delivery services are available.
A large selection of unique bare root cactus will be available at the sale. Bare root plants are often easier to plant than container plants, as they are lighter and do not require the digging of an extra-large hole. Garden-related pottery, art and other specialties will be available. Cash, checks and credit cards will be accepted. Complimentary help will be available for customers who need assistance loading plants into vehicles.
COST: No admission charge to enter the Spring Plant Sale.
