Fall Plant Sale 2022: Member Shopping

Location Formal Lawn

Enjoy priority shopping at our popular Fall Plant Sale and pick up your annual Member Plant Gift as a member of the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens!

Members will enjoy first dibs on hundreds of plants, including natives, perennials, herbs,  tropicals, ferns, camellias, trees, and shrubs, many of which have been nurtured at the Gardens by the Friends’ dedicated volunteer growing groups.

Members will also receive their annual Member Plant Gift: a seedless, pollinator-friendly CranRazz™ butterfly bush courtesy of our friends at Leaf & Petal. While supplies last!

New this year: Preorder fall bedding plants at the sale for pickup Saturday, October 8!

The sale, which offers a wonderful opportunity to gain expert advice from seasoned gardeners—many of whom have trained under the Jefferson County Master Gardener program—will be open to the public from 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. on Saturday, September 10. Proceeds support the Friends’ mission: to protect, nurture, and share the wonders of Birmingham Botanical Gardens.

Both Member Priority Shopping and the Public Sale will take place outdoors in the Gardens’ Formal Lawn and Hill Garden. 

“Fall is a wonderful time to plant, and the Friends’ annual Fall Plant Sale offers our community a terrific opportunity to talk with experts about plants that thrive in Southern gardens and to discover tried-and-true tips and tricks for caring for them,” says Tom Underwood, executive director of the Friends of Birmingham Botanical Gardens. 

“Your purchases and membership also benefit a great cause,” says Underwood. “By joining the Friends and shopping our Fall Plant Sale, you are supporting our work here at the Gardens.  Each year we educate thousands of schoolchildren about the science of plants and grow thousands of pounds of fresh vegetables to combat hunger in our community. We also help maintain the Gardens, spearhead much-needed improvement projects, and work to promote the Gardens as a destination of local and regional significance. Perhaps most importantly, you are helping the Gardens grow and thrive, ensuring that future generations will have the same opportunities we have to enjoy this community treasure.”
