It's almost time for the Landis Fall Plant, Book, and Bake Sale!

Written By Editor on 9/5/22 | 9/5/22

The Landis Fall Plant, Book, and Bake Sale
is coming soon!

No better time to plant perennials!

We've been dusting off the little red wagons and

making connections with our plant consignors, all for

the Fall Plant, Book, and Bake Sale.

It's a can't miss event for gardeners! 

Pick of the Pots Sale (POPS) Friday, September 9

4:00 - 6:00 PM


The sale starts a day early on Friday for members, with the Pick of the Pots Sale (POPS) from 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Members are invited to join us for the best choice of wonderful plants, including rare and unusual plants. You'll also have an array of delicious appetizers and beverages to enjoy while you shop.


Best of all, there's no cost to members for the Pick of the Pots Party - except, of course, for those plants, books, and goodies that you can't resist taking home with you! Not a member? Don't worry! You can join on the spot.

September 10 & 11, Saturday and Sunday,

10:00 AM - 4:00 PM - The Sale! Open to everyone


Landis Arboretum's Fall Plant and Book Sale comes on the cusp of fall, when the leaves are turning and the evenings are cooler - a perfect time to plant perennials. 

Our fall plant sale always features trees, shrubs, and other perennials that like to be planted in the fall, including many that are native to New York. And of course, there will be wonderful baked goodies (plastic wrapped for safety) and a barn room stuffed with books to keep you busy when the weather turns!

As usual, we will have some unusual and special specimens for the discerning gardener. Please note that the more special the plant, the more likely it is to sell early. Shop early to get the best pick! Scroll down to read our Plant Sale Primer. 

If you have any questions about the sale or our safety precautions, please contact us at If you would like to volunteer for the sale, contact our volunteer coordinator at

There are always some special features at our sales:

  • Visit the "Bulb Bar." Grab a baggie and Mix or Match to select your choice of bulbs, corms, or tubers. 
  • We will offer limited numbers of "Rare and Unusual Specimen" plants, chosen because of their unique characteristics.  Try out a dwarf evergreen or an interesting shrub with variegated leaves. More information will be available on our Facebook page on exactly which plants we'll have. PLEASE NOTE: There will be limited supplies of these featured plants, so your best bet at getting one is to come to the Members Only Pick of the Pots Sale (POPS) on Friday, September 9, 4:00 PM to 6:00 PM. Get first crack at plants and receive the members' 10% discount on your plant purchases. Not a member? Don't worry - you can join at the gate!
  • Check out our collection of "Small Trees and Shrubs for Small Spaces."   
  • Browse our "Pollinator Plant" category, which will feature plants that provide nectar, pollen, seeds, or nest-building materials.

Then there are books, and baked goods . . .    

As wonderful as the plants are, this is not just a plant sale. While you're at Landis, take a break to browse the used book sale in the Book Shop, perhaps to find something to expand your knowledge of gardening or trees, or perhaps to grab some "brain candy" to read after you've completed a satisfying day of gardening.

And don't forget our ever-popular bake sale - there is always a great selection of home made treats at good prices! And if YOU like to bake, please consider making something for the bake sale. People loved our goodies so much in the spring, and we don't want to run out early. If you're interested in helping, please contact Bake Sale manager Susan Strangia at

And don't forget our Vendors and Fast Freddy's Tag Sale
