Annual Plant SaleMay 3-5, 2024

Spring really wouldn’t be spring without Tyler’s annual Plant Sale, which happens over the course of the first weekend in May.

The Plant Sale takes place outdoors and is a rain or shine event. Garden experts are on hand to offer advice on plant selection, planting and care tips, and the best kinds of companion plants. The Plant Sale’s large selection of plants offers something to suit all pockets and tastes: from trees, shrubs, and perennials; to annuals, herbs, and vegetables.

The Plant Sale includes a member preview day on Friday. You must be a member of Tyler to shop for plants on this day. The rest of the weekend the Plant Sale is open to the general public between 9am and 2pm. Admission to the Plant Sale is free.
