One of our most interesting sections at this annual sale is Potluck. Plants are sold from many donated sources including Members and VanDusen Garden. Your precious healthy plants could become someone else’s treasures when you donate. If you have healthy plants that have expanded beyond your space, we will take care of them!  They will be potted, kept safe during the winter and then sold at the April sale. Plants tend to stay healthier if they have time to settle in their pots before planting in the spring.

Due to the Japanese Beetle, the Canadian Food Inspection Agency (CFIA) has put in place restricted movement controls on plant materials and soil from the regulated areas. No donations can be accepted from within the restricted area and all donations must be accepted in person, not left at the gate. Please visit CFIA website for more info.

All proceeds from this sale are donated to the Vancouver Botanical Gardens Association (VBGA).
