Online Store Opens 9/24: Fall Interest Plants featured

2020 Online Store Offers Plants with Fall Interest & More

Virtual reality has its advantages — our ability to have a Fall Plant Sale! UDBG is thrilled to be able to open its online plant store on Thursday, September 24th at noon. We will feature many fall interest plants. Many plants will be discounted up to 50% off. UDBG Members will receive their Fall Membership plant dividend during this time. More details to follow.

Fall Sale opens on Thursday, Sept. 24 at noon, closes on Monday, Sept.  28 at 4:00 pm.

All orders require a $35 minimum order due to minimal staff resources. Payment is by credit card only at the time of purchase. Once placed, orders cannot be revised. Additional plants will require a separate order.

A UDBG staff will contact you via email to schedule an appointment to pickup your plant order. Pickup is rain or shine. For the safety and well-being of all, when picking up, customers must remain in the car while UDBG staff loads. This follows current Delaware State protocol.

Directions to the pickup/loading site will be emailed.

2021 Spring Plant Sale

UDBG members exclusively receive the full color Spring Plant Sale catalog as one of their member benefits. In 2021, UDBG will celebrate its 29th Annual Spring Plant Sale with Deutzia as our featured shrub group and hardy ferns as the herbaceous featured plant group.

We offer customers plants that work well here. We grow, test, and evaluate plants in the UDBG collection and our academic programs vet the plants. UDBG Friends and Plant Sale Patrons are permitted early entry to the Spring Plant Sale. Patrons of the Spring Plant Sale provide support to our Student Programs, helping students maintain, develop,and interpret the plant collection and gardens. Students gain hands-on experience, learn skills, build resumes, while also earning monies.

The plant sale is organized by the UDBG staff, UDBG Friends, and dedicated volunteers. We accept major credit cards, checks, and cash. The sale is located on Roger Martin Lane, inside the fenced-in area across from Fischer Greenhouse on UD’s south campus. We request you drive a vehicle large enough to fit your plant purchases. Additional plants are available for purchase on each sale day in limited quantity. We also have a list of hot peppers and tomatillo for sale.

2021 Dates for Spring Plant Sale:

Wednesday, April 21, 4:00 – 6pm (please note: cost to attend this event only is $200; RSVP required; email mzoehrer@udel.edu). Patrons at this level receive a catalog mailed first class.
