Curbside pick-up has made the sale run much smoother, especially with the increased demand in recent years, and will continue.  A few extra plants may be available during the sale for those interested, but make sure to place an order for anything you want!

  • Pickup/Sale days are April 19 & 20
  • Pre-Orders are due by April 3!  Exception – Bare-Root Evergreen Tree Seedlings – orders are due March 12!
  • We encourage you to order as soon as possible, as supplies are limited!
  • Please Note:  Due to the increase in demand in recent years, we are maintaining expanded pick-up hours, staggering pick-ups as much as possible, providing curb-side service, and limiting the “sale” to a simple pre-order pick-up.  We will provide updates if anything changes, and will send out our usual reminder postcards shortly before pickup with further information.
