Native Plant Sale – Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or until the plants are gone
The Native Plant Sale will be held in the open Pavilion at the Douglas County Fairgrounds at 2120 Harper Street in Lawrence, Kansas. The plants are all grown locally without pesticides, and are all native to Kansas. We will be selling 29 new varieties of plants that we have never carried before. You will be able to preorder bloom boxes containing 15 plants, or purchase individual plants on the day of the sale. See the Native Plant Sale plant list and review the Bloom Box details. After you select your Bloom Boxes, you can order them online from the Bloom Box page.
Our bloom boxes have been extremely popular, and most are sold out. All of the plants in the Bloom Boxes will be available for individual purchase during the Native Plant Sale.
Garden Art Sale – Saturday, June 3, 2023 at 9:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m., or until the art has been sold

While you are at the Fairgrounds for these events, stop by and see our demonstration garden. It will provide you with great ideas for all types of gardening–full sun, shade, attracting pollinators, rain garden, veggie garden and more!
