Plant Sale

There are 2 different ways your organization can have a plant sale.

OPTION #1

The most popular is a "Pre-Sale" Plant Sale. We help you decide a delivery date and  choose items to offer for your sale. Your organization goes out and sells those items. We delivery them to you on your delivery date. 

OPTION #2

The second type is a general "Plant Sale".  It is the same as above but you do not "pre-sale" anything.  We help you decide a delivery date,  items that you would like to sell and we deliver them to you.  Please note that we DO NOT take back  any plants that may  not have sold at

end of the sale. 

 

Please note:

  • We only deliver within the Twin Cities area. If outside the area please contact us.

  • We typically recommend you  mark up 50-100%  on the price of the plants. 

 

Any questions please give us a call or Email Us!
