We're holding a pop-up plant sale on Sunday, October 9 from 2-4pm in Umstead State Park. For our plant sale on October 1, we ordered many more plants than we ever had before (and we sold a ton!), but the sale was impacted by tropical storm Ian. 

For our pop-up sale on Sunday, October 9, we've put all of the perennials on sale for $8! 

We'll also be selling the very popular Master Gardener Monthly Garden Guides for the Piedmont. $20 each.  We will also have the 2023 Calendar and T-shirts, hoodies, and fleeces. 


  • SALE! Common milkweed seeds: $1
  • SALE! 4" and 1 gal perennials: $8
  • 1 gal shrubs & trees: $20
  • 1 gal Pawpaw and Dwarf azalea: $25
  • 3 gal: $30
