March Mania Plant Sale
Our ever-popular March Mania Plant Sale is held in the Aaron Education Center at the Bellevue Botanical Garden. Rain or shine, browse unique offerings indoors, out of the elements. Parking is free and plentiful, friendly volunteers abound, and many fantastic plants are waiting for a home in your garden.
March Mania proceeds supports both NPA's Horticultural Education Programs and our Specialty Nurseries, most of whom only sell plants at specialty plant sales. It's also a rare opportunity to chat with these knowledgeable growers, and to look for that special, hard-to find plant. In addition, NPA will be selling plants propagated from the NPA Border, including double hellebores.
After plant shopping, be sure to visit the gorgeous NPA Border for ideas, inspiration, and to enjoy the magic of spring!

Spring Plant Sale
Celebrate the growing season by attending NPA’s annual Spring Plant Sale. This popular event is a highlight of spring, plus it’s an important fundraiser for NPA, benefiting all of our Horticultural Education Programs - scholarships, classes, lectures, workshops, and our gorgeous NPA Border.
A select group of local small nurseries and specialty growers will sell an amazing collection of perennials, shrubs, ferns, grasses and more. Many of these vendors are not open to the public, and all offer unique plants to delight any plant geek! This is your chance to shop from the best, all in one location, and bring home many new treasures to enhance your garden.
Arrive early for best selections. Better yet, volunteer to help at this event and and get the inside scoop on your favorite vendors and plants!
