2021 Spring Plant Sale for Members

For the safety of our volunteers, members and friends. We combined our traditional May and June native plant into one on line sale. More than 4,000 wildflowers, grasses, ferns, shrubs and trees were offered including spring and early summer species. 

Ordering plants ended on May 29 and shoppers will be picking up their plants on the first two Saturdays in June at Plane View Nursery, 770 Wapping Road Portsmouth, RI 02871 during the slot on they chose.

Inventory for 2021 Spring Plant Sale – includes most of the plants

We anticipate returning to live plant sales in 2022!

Our plants come primarily through our Seed Starters Groups and from plants grown and donated by members and friends. We specialize in plants that are native to Rhode Island, but also have plants native to other areas of New England or the larger area of Eastern North America.

Proceeds support the work of Rhode Island Wild Plant Society.
