Fall Plant Sale
Please join Duke Gardens at our Fall Plant Sale on Saturday, Sept. 30, 2017.
You'll find an array of plants ideal for this region, including Duke Gardens plants, trees, shrubs, vines, bulbs, and decorative plant pots. And you can get free gardening advice from our staff and Durham County Extension Master Gardeners.
Hours: 8 a.m. to noon.
Member Discount: Members of the Friends of Duke Gardens get 10 percent off their total Fall Plant Sale purchase. Non-members may join on site or save time by joining in advance.
Herb Garden in a Box! Our herb garden sale feature was so popular in spring that we will revive it for the fall sale. Arrive early to get the best selection.
Dorm Plants! Students and indoor gardeners, we'll have a special table set up with succulents and other plants that thrive indoors.
Support tomorrow's interns: Did you know that profits from our plant sales help us to offer four paid summer internships to aspiring horticultural professionals each year? Duke Gardens' full-time staff now boasts six former interns! We thank you for helping us provide a solid foundation for these talented pros and others like them.
Videos: Please see our videos on youtube for past sale footage and previews.
Buses: Please note that due to high traffic volume on this day, we cannot permit bus parking during the plant sale.
Admission & parking: Free
Wagons/carts/boxes: Our supply of wagons and boxes is limited, so please bring your own if you have them. It will enable you to get your shopping done far faster. Thanks!
Pets: Dogs and other pets are not permitted at the plant sale. Read more here.
A note about Yom Kippur: We at Duke Gardens sincerely apologize for failing to realize sooner that our typical fall sale date, the final Saturday in September, conflicts this year with Yom Kippur. Unfortunately, we are unable to move the date of the sale. We realize and regret that this excludes members of our community. We have developed a plan to ensure that we do not overlook any important religious dates when scheduling future plant sales. Again, we are terribly sorry for this oversight.
