Fall Plant Sale at Desert Botanical Garden

Event Summary

Bring the Garden home! The Plant Sale is back with a unique fall shopping experience. Thousands of plants will be available for all levels of gardeners. Pick your perfect sustainable landscape items — cactus, succulents or signature garden plants to add to your landscape.

This even takes place from 7 a.m. to 3 p.m. Oct. 19 to 22. Reservations open Aug. 25.

In addition to horticulture staff available on-site to help you find the perfect item, here are a few other educational opportunities taking place as part of this year’s plant sales:

Plant a Herb Container
