Garden lovers can continue to shop for native plants, shrubs, and trees as well as the newest hybrids with Greenhouse Shopping Appointments. Appointments are made by calling the arboretum office at (540) 568-3194 and giving two days, dates, and times when you want to shop. It's that easy. The arboretum office will make the reservation and then be back in touch to confirm a private shopping appointment! Or, a small inventory of plants, shrubs, and trees will be available for purchase throughout the growing season, now through the first hard frost of fall!
Fall is a great time to plant! Temperatures moderate and soil holds warmth allowing for rapid root development. Perennials, shrubs and trees planted in the fall establish to be ready for a spring bloom that will burst into enviable color! Shop the sale with friends and family for a fun way to enhance the beauty of your home or business landscape.
Beginning mid-September, bulb orders can be placed online at the arboretum website. Advance orders will be available to pick up ahead, either during the business work week, or at the plant sale. Online ordering is easy!
Your purchase with cash, check, or charge, supports JMU's and Harrisonburg's favorite urban greenspace, open daily from dawn to dusk, free to the public.
