Plant Market

Online Plant Sales

We have an ongoing selection of plants available in our our Online Plant Market. New inventory is added on the first Wednesday of each month so please check back often for a great seasonal selection. All plants purchased in our Online Plant Market are curbside pickup only.  When you checkout you will have the opportunity to choose your pickup date from a list of available options.

Since it is spring in the greenhouse, our April 7th online plant release will be massive! We know many of our longtime plant sale shoppers look forward to the annual list of plants available for sale and our Nursery and Greenhouse Manager has put together a sneak peak of the inventory that will go up on our Online Plant Market at 9 a.m. on Wednesday, April 7th.  As always, there will be more plants that we decide to include in this sale at the last minute and we have varying quantity of each of these (shop early if you have your eye on something). Click below to download and look through the plants that will be available on the online shop on April 7th.

In-Person Plant Sales

Yew Dell also has in-person plant sales. We are having our Annual Spring Plant Sale in person on April 24th, sponsored by our friends at LG&E and KU Foundation. Tickets must be purchased in advanced.

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. If you are out visiting the gardens, be sure to stop by the shop for a a new plant or two for your own backyard.

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.
