Plant Sale

The Annual Plant Sale

Each May, the GCA hosts a perennial plant sale on the Amherst Town Common. We spend the weeks before the sale digging and potting hundreds of plants from each other’s gardens.

Plant List   

These are listings of most of the plants that have ever been included in our Annual Plant Sale. We don’t have all of these plants every year, though we do have a lot of them! If there is a plant you particularly covet, send us an email ahead of time and we will see what we can do to procure it.  Plan to come early for the best selection.

The sale, which in 2018 grossed almost $10,000, supports our own community projects and enables us to offer financial support to local organizations whose missions coincide with our own.
