Landscape and Nursery - UDBG Events

The following are the University of Delaware Botanic Garden events scheduled for 2009 to put on your calendar.

UDBG Events

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 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 growth and development of the UDBG.

Plant Sale Preview Talk – Tuesday, March 18 from 7-9 PM in the Girl Scout Building on the College of Agriculture and Natural Resources campus in Newark. This talk is free and open to the public. It will include a small, select plant silent auction.

Guided Plant Walk – Thursday, March 27 from 4- 5:30 PM departing from Fischer Greenhouse. This plant walk is free with a reservation (302-831-2531). Dr. John Frett will lead this tour of plant sale items so buyers can see plants established in the landscape in larger or mature sizes.

UDBG Plant Sale – Saturday, April 25 from 9:30 AM to 4 PM. The UDBG spring plant sale is held on Ag Day each year. Plants include perennials, tender perennials, shrubs, small flowering trees, evergreens and shade trees. Plant sizes range from quarts to 5 gallons.
