Annual Plant Giveaway

The epic event of public horticulture where thousands of choice and rare plants disappear in five minutes after the whistle blows. This longtime member tradition was started by our founder J. C. Raulston and remains a member favorite to this day. This event takes place on the first Saturday of each October. Please check our Calendar to see when our next will take place.

Participation in the Annual Plant Giveaway is limited to members only, so join today and join in the fun on the first Saturday in October.
