GHF is proud to announce that our 9th Annual Spring Native Plant Sale is almost here! The sale will be held Saturday May 15th, 2021 from 10 AM to 2 PM at Trinity Episcopal Church in Downtown Lawrence, KS. You will find all of the details about our Spring Native Plant Sale below, including member pre-order information, Garden-To-Go kit information, and our 2021 plant list!
Plant Sale Information
After a large amount of GHF member preorders, we have updated our plant list with the plants that will be available on the day of the sale. Click below to find the list of the plants that will be available May 15th:
To find more information about a plant on the list, click on the botanical name of the plant on the list to bring up the Missouri Botanical Garden Plant Finder page for the plant. Here you will find photos, the size of the plant, and other gardening and care information. You can use this information to best match the site that you hope to plant in.
All plants are $4 each. We will be accepting credit/debit cards, cash, or check as payment.
Most plants will be in 3.5" pots although the size of the actual plant will vary according to species. GHF cannot replace plants that do not live once they are taken home.
We also encourage you to bring your own box to carry your plants home in.
Trinity Episcopal Church is located at 1011 Vermont St, Lawrence, KS 66044.
The sale will be held outdoors in the Trinity Episcopal Church Courtyard. We will be metering people in to the sale area- only allowing so many groups into the sale area to prevent a large crowd from forming, especially at the beginning of the sale. We strongly encourage you to take advantage of the whole length of the sale, potentially arriving later than the very beginning. If you do arrive at the start, please join in line and be respectful of the distance between you and others. Also, masks are required for all patrons and sale staff and volunteers.
Interested in native plant gardening but don’t know where to start? This year we will be offering starter kits for native plant gardening beginners. These kits, designed for about a 5'x6' space, have a collection of plants that are staples for native plant gardens and are a fun and easy way to get your garden started! In addition to the full kits, we are offering two native plant garden booster packs! Our booster packs make it simple to add a collection of either milkweeds or grasses to your new or existing garden. All of the kits will be available the day of the sale only (no pre-orders), and limited quantities will be available. Kits come with care instructions and planting guide.

Once we have confirmed your membership, we will send the order form your way! Pre-orders close Sunday, May 9th.

We will then email you an invoice from Stripe for pre-payment. Watch your Spam folder if you do not receive it. Pre-paying for your plants will make picking up your plants much easier! If you are not able to pay by online via card payment, we can take a check but no cash.
Pre-Order Pick Up: Pre-orders can be picked up drive-thru style on Friday May 14th from 5 PM- 7 PM or during the sale on Saturday May 15th between 10 AM and 2 PM.
