Bartram’s Garden Spring Plant Sale: Online Edition!

As with so many things, our annual Spring Plant Sale is going to work a bit differently this year. We wish we could see your faces and talk with you in the Garden, but for now we’re doing everything we can to provide you with these life-sustaining and enriching plants. As you make your purchases, know that your support helps us immensely as we navigate these difficult times.

We’ve launched an online store where you can pre-order plants and sign up for a pick-up date. Upcoming pick up-dates are May 16th and May 23rd between 9am and 3pm.

Pre-orders close May 10.

As ever, the Spring Plant Sale has a wide assortment of flowering perennials, select heirloom vegetables, vines, shrubs, and trees, all of which support the urban ecology and provide food for not only humans, but for the many pollinators around our city, as well. The proceeds will support our robust community programming that prioritizes our Southwest Philadelphia community—a community that will be disproportionately affected by what’s happening right now. 

The safety of our staff and visitors is our top priority. We are grateful for your understanding and flexibility as we all work together to keep our community safe. Here’s our plan to get your plants to you as safely as possible:

Pick up Day Instructions:

  1. At your pickup time, enter at 54th St and Lindbergh Blvd and proceed down Harley Ave to the parking loop next to the meadow. Staff will be there to direct you to your assigned pickup zone.
  2. Once you arrive at your pick up zone, make sure you park within the spray painted lines. Please keep a safe distance of six feet between staff and other customers.
