Over the years we've made various time-lapse videos of the sale, or captured other video.
Roll Through the Plant Sale, 2022
From outside in Perennials, past Climbers and Miniatures, then Native Perennials and Shrubs to Grasses. Then we go inside to Annuals, past Herbs and Vegetables and back to conclude at the door to Grasses. Accompanied by a somewhat sleepy version of Nikolai Rimsky-Korsakov's "Flight of the Bumblebee."

270 Degree View of the 2007 Sale
If you're curious about what the whole sale looks like, this video shows it in a slow pan from the west end of the building (looking over the roses) to the north side where the perennials are located along the back of the room, and then around past the annuals to the south side of the room. It's 40 seconds long.
