University of Delaware Botanic Garden Events - Plant Sale and Sale Preview Talk

The University of Delaware Botanic Gardens sponsors events for gardeners and commercial landscapers. The UDBG is a wonderful resource for the nursery and landscape industry. The following is information on the Spring Plant Sale and Plant Sale Preview Talk.

The Spring UDBG plant sale is a great place to buy unusual plants with limited availability in the nursery and landscape trade. The sale benefits student internships as well as the growth and development of the UDBG.

Plant Sale Preview Talk

Tuesday, March 18 from 7-9 p.m. in the Girl Scout Building on the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources campus in Newark. UDBG Friends generously sponsor a lecture highlighting plants featured in the spring plant sale. UDBG Director John Frett will show many of the plants offered in the catalog and sale. Refreshments served. The event will include a small, silent auction of select plant gems not found in the catalog or at the plant sale. Plants to be auctioned will be placed on the UDBG website the week before the preview. This talk is free and open to the public.
