Each year on Mother’s Day weekend in May, Friends School of Minnesota puts on the biggest fundraising plant sale in Minnesota, perhaps even in the Midwest! Over 2,500 varieties of plants are offered for sale.
The next sale dates are Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 10-12, 2019.
The sale is held in the State Fair’s Grandstand Building, where there is lots of indoor space with plenty of light and even indoor bathrooms!
We stock a full line of annuals, perennials, climbing plants, native wildflowers, and vegetables, with selected water plants, roses, and trees and shrubs.
Entirely volunteer-run, the Friends School Plant Sale has become a Twin Cities institution with loyal fans. You can become a volunteer (which gives the added incentive of being able to shop at the pre-sale Thursday event).
To be added to the Friends School Plant Sale mailing list for next year, please email us.
For more information, visit the Friends School Plant Sale official site for up-to-date information.
You can purchase plant sale gift certificates for the Plant Sale on our website in amounts of $25, $40, $50, $75 or $100. You can also stop by the office to place an order and pay with cash or check.
