Volunteer Plant Sale - Social Distancing Version

May 19, 2020 | STARTING MAY 19TH 9AM - Noon - Tuesday thru Saturday
Plant Sale 2020 Color Logo

Lichterman Nature Center’s annual Plant Sale was canceled this year due to Coronavirus quarantine. However, our volunteers have spent the past year propagating thousands of plants here at Lichterman Nature Center using environmentally sustainable propagation techniques. They have expertly grown plants to attract native pollinators, edible plants, native shrubs and trees, and a variety of plants hard to find anywhere else.  

Reopening bonus:  Plants will be available for purchase on site  on the outdoor terraces behind the Greenhouse Tuesday through Saturday from 11 am until 1 pm.  Lichterman’s Plant Activities Coordinator, Anne Ballentine, will be on hand to answer gardening questions and to assist customers with plant selection. 

In response to popular demand, we’re making these plants available from now through the end of June – social distance-style! Please follow these simple steps to get these amazing plants into your garden:

(1)   Use the Order Form to let us know how many of each type of plant you want and email to Nature.Reservations [at] memphistn [dot] gov   

  • Quantities are limited.  Orders will be filled “first come, first served” based on date of payment
  • The Plant Information & Image File contains images and descriptive information about each plant offered for sale
  • NEW PLANTS are available

(2)   Our Reservations Desk will contact you to arrange credit card payment for your order and email you a receipt with pick-up time. 

  • Pick up times will be from 9 am until noon, Tuesday through Saturday. 
  • The number of orders available for pick up at one time will be a determined by group size limits set forth in City of Memphis Coronavirus Response Phases
  • This socially distanced sale will end on or before Tuesday, June 30, 2020
