Spring and Fall Plant Sales

At our plant sales, we offer customers plants that work well here. We grow, test, and evaluate plants in the UDBG collection and our academic programs vett the plants. UDBG Friends and Plant Sale Patrons are permitted early entry to the Spring Plant Sale. Patrons of the Spring Plant Sale provide support to our Student Intern Program, helping students to gain hands-on experience, learn skills, build resumes, while also earning monies.
