HOUSE PLANT SALE
September 23rd from 11am – 3pm
Our next house plant sale is finally nearing! This fall it will be happening on September 23rd from 11am – 3pm (****or until supplies last). To respond to the fantastic popularity of our sales we have produced more plants than ever before, but! It is still worth trying to come earlier than later as we sell out relatively quickly. We have a selection of plants to offer you for sun or shade, large or small, and all eager for new home. Prices range from $2-20 for most plants, and we will be providing discounts to undergraduate students. Don’t forget to bring your student ID!

**** Note: the earlier you come, the more selection you will have, as some species are short in numbers.
