Plant & Bulb Sales
Plant and bulb sales at the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden help fulfill the Garden’s mission — “Explaining, exploring and celebrating the world of plants” — by disseminating worthy plants for Iowa gardens that are not generally available from local sources and by raising funds in support of the Garden’s plant collections and programming.
- The Spring Garden Festival is the Botanical Garden's signature opportunity to celebrate gardening in Iowa. The Festival features headline educational opportunities, opening night gala, and a limited edition plant sale featuring 500 different perennials, annuals, vegetables, tropicals and shrubs for all garden styles, merchandized in fashion-forward rooms brimming with garden ideas. Occurs every Mothers Day Weekend - Thursday night thur Sunday.
- For many years, the Friends of the Greater Des Moines Botanical Garden produced the annual Fall Bulb Mart featuring over 125 different varieties of garden favorites and underappreciated gems. The Fall Bulb Mart will not be held in 2017.
