Come early for the best selection—we start selling at 9:00am. You may have to wait in line (as some of you already know from past sales!)

There will be NO limit on the number of plants that can be purchased, although we still encourage you to purchase a diversity of plants. If you wish to purchase a large quantity (over 30) of any one species, please contact the Marion SWCD before the plant sale and we will assist you with purchasing your plants outside of the plant sale. We do not take pre-orders.

We accept credit and debit cards along with cash and check
