The Ultimate Plant Sale! May 6, 7 and 8. The sale is on rain or shine. Come out to support the Gardens and our Student Internship Program.

The Spring Flower Fair is a garden plant sale that provides you with the opportunity to purchase everyone's favorite varieties, as well as unique and/or difficult-to-find plants that will enhance your garden with flower, form or food.  This year we increased the selection of those hard-to-find plants, but also focused upon those plants that will provide solutions to difficult sites in your garden! 

Your purchase directly benefits the Rutgers Gardens Student Internship Program, which will provide hands-on educational experience for over 12 students this coming summer.  Rutgers Gardens is entirely self-supporting, and your support is greatly needed and appreciated!
