On-Site Plant Sale Fundraiser

Mark your calendars for Allerton’s 8th Annual Allerton Plant Sale Fundraiser! Grab your gardening enthusiasm and meet us at the Park to purchase your annuals, herbs, veggies, perennials, natives, arranged hanging baskets, Allerton Bluebells (limited!) and more! 100% of the profits made from the Plant Sale will go directly towards maintaining the Park and public programs. Get your quality plants to spruce up your home, garden, or as a gift while also supporting a local business!

On Saturday, May 1 and Sunday, May 2, visitors can browse our inventory for a variety of your favorite plants perfect for outdoor or indoor spaces.
• The sale will be located in the Main Parking Lot, near the Evergreen Lodge. (Follow the signs if you’re not sure you’re in the right place!)
• You can make your purchase on-site using cash or card.
• Allerton staff will be available to offer advice and answer your questions about plant selection and care.

Do you have plant or gardening questions you’d like answered before the sale?
The Master Gardeners Help Desk is committed to providing answers to all your questions! Simply fill out the form here, and a volunteer will get back to you with a research-based answer!

We will also host a Curbside Plant Sale* (April 5 — April 18) where you can order your plants online from the safety of home and pick them up curbside at the Park! Find more information here.

*Please note: we cannot guarantee that the product selection available on the online store will be identical to the selection available at the On-Site Plant Sale.

If you have questions, give us a call at 217-333-3287 or email Micah Putman at putman@illinois.edu.
