Native Plant Sale

Our annual sale is one of the biggest one-day native plant sales in New England. In past years we have offered well over 4,000 plants representing more than 120 native species. These include:

  • Perennials for sun, shade, part-shade, and all types of soil conditions. 
  • A large selection of ferns, both evergreen and deciduous.
  • Grasses and sedges, for cool season and warm season interest. 
  • Trees and shrubs, at small sizes you can take home in your car. Remember that native trees and shrubs do the most to increase biodiversity and to enhance the wildlife value of your landscapes.  

Most of the species we sell are native to Massachusetts and New England. We include a few additional species from the eastern United States, especially if we believe they have ecological value here or they are great finds that are otherwise hard to source.

    Our annual native plant sale offers you a very large selection of species with thousands of plants available. Given the current public health crisis, we are working to change the format of the sale this year to a pre-order only process with scheduled pick-up times. Stay tuned for updates and date adjustments.

    When:

    May 30 | All day

  • The Pre-Order Process: How It Works

    Pre-ordering plants for pick up is available to Grow Native members at the Advocate/Family level and above, allowing you to select the exact quantity of plants desired and reserving them in advance. We generally are able to offer 70-80 species through pre-order and will include as many species as we can reliably procure this year. Your member contributions are essential to our ability to orchestrate this complex process, and we love being able to offer this service and thank you for your generous support!

    • The Pre-Sale catalog and order form will be e-mailed to all members approximately five weeks before the sale, and orders will be due by mid-May. The minimum order is $150. 
    • Pre-Sale orders will be scheduled for pick up at a precise day and time— on the scheduled sale date (May 30) or on the two days prior (May 28 or 29), and you will be offered a choice of dates and times available. 

    We are currently retooling this program in light of the coronavirus crisis and will be e-mailing precise information about the logistics and species availability of this year's sale in April and May, and as we continue to monitor how to safely run this program in the midst of constantly evolving public health guidelines. Stay tuned, and thank you for being adaptable in working with us.
