Lots of plants on multi-layered wooden tables

[This description applies to the usual Friends School Plant Sale, not the 2021 sale!]

Each year on Mother's Day weekend in May, Friends School of Minnesota puts on the biggest fundraising plant sale in the state, perhaps even in the Midwest! 

We stock a full line of annuals, perennials, climbing plants, native wildflowers, and vegetables, with selected roses, and trees and shrubs. A catalog of our offerings is available for reference, with PDF versions available in the catalog section of the site.

Printed versions of the catalog are mailed around April 1 each year to anyone on our mailing list or can be found at many libraries, coffee shops and natural food co-ops in Minneapolis and Saint Paul. If you'd like to get on our mailing list for next year, please email catalog@friendsschoolplantsale.com – include “add to plant sale list” in the reference line.

Entirely volunteer-run, the Friends School Plant Sale has become a Twin Cities institution with loyal fans. You can become a volunteer (which gives the added incentive of being able to shop at the Thursday pre-sale event). Signups are open February 1 through the week of the sale.
