In-Person Plant Sales
In addition to our Annual Spring Plant Sale event, we have a seasonal selection of plants available for purchase onsite from early May – October through our Garden Gift Shop. Starting this year, we have a new Plant Market, located in an open-air structure near the log cabin, as well as plants adjacent to our Garden Gift Shop. Feel free to explore the seasonal selection of plants to find a new plant or two for your own backyard. Plants can be taken to the Garden Gift Shop for purchase.
**Please note that we have several production greenhouses, a glass greenhouse for our tropical collection, and plant trial areas that are not open for shopping. Please do not remove plants from these areas. Thank you!**
When you purchase plants online or in-person from our Nursery Program, you directly support Yew Dell Botanical Gardens.
Behind the Scenes Our Nursery Program
At Yew Dell, we are all about plants. Before we became a botanical garden in 2001, Yew Dell started as a commercial nursery in the 1940s. We returned to our roots with the addition of our Nursery Program in 2018.
We search the globe for plants we think are worth trying in Kentucky, bring them to the gardens and test their ability to thrive in this region. Each year, the horticulturists in our nursery have to figure out how to grow different types of plants–some that have scarcely been cultivated before. They grow thousands of plants annually for research, display and sales. Our goal is to get better plants out to the gardening world.
