Friends School Plant Sale is held Mother's Day weekend at the Minnesota State Fair Grandstand with 2,300 varieties of plants. The 2016 sale will be held Friday, Saturday and Sunday, May 6, 7, and 8. It's fund-raising event sponsored by the Friends School of Minnesota in Saint Paul.
The plant sale has worked hard to make sure our plants have not been treated with neonicotinoids, common pesticides that are now suspected of killing bees and other pollinators. Read our full statement on this important issue.

The 2015 catalog is now available. You can find the downloadable PDF version here.
The plant sale is entirely volunteer-run. Volunteers are invited to shop before the sale opens to the public. Find out more.
