Autumn plant sale

Put those green thumbs to work.

If you can’t think of a better way to spend a Sunday than lovingly attending to your bountiful garden, then you won’t want to miss the massive plant sale taking place this weekend.

Located in the Royal Botanical Gardens, the sale will offer special plants that are not often found in regular plant stores.

Autumn Plant Sale

  • The sale will run on Saturday April 29 from 10am to 4pm and on Sunday April 30 from 10am to 3pm
  • Stop by to browse through a wide range of rare plants sources from the garden
  • There will be a team of trained staff there to offer gardening advice

Stay up to date with what’s happening in and around Melbourne here.

Sourced straight from the garden themselves, find plants including Australian natives, climbers, bulbs, rhizomes, camellias, herbs, perennials, hanging baskets, shrubs, succulents, trees, bromeliads, orchids, rhododendrons and  vireyas.

Even if you’re the type of person who is known for killing every plant you’ve ever brought home, you’ll still be able to take part.

A team of highly-educated staff who work on the garden’s horticulture team will be there to provide you with information on how to keep your little darlings alive, including how much you should water them, potting, sunlight and soil needs.

The event will take place near the inside southern gate of the gardens and entry is free for anyone who wants to stop by. Hosted annually (with a similar event in the spring), the plant sale helps generate funds to help support the work of the Royal Botanical Gardens.
