Pop-Up Plant Sale

Shop for a great range of rare and hard-to-find plants at our special Plant Pop-Up Sale, open for two days only in the Australian Botanic Garden. 

On Friday 26 and Saturday 27 June, we are following NSW's social distancing guidelines to open up the Garden's Nursery to sell our wide selection of plants, propagated by volunteers from the Australian Botanic Garden's living collection.

These plants have been enjoying plenty of attention and pampering from the Garden's expert horticulturalists for the past few months, but it is time to help them find their forever homes. We have everything from easy-to-care-for indoor plants to challenges for the greenest of thumbs. A small potted plant for your desk or a tree for your backyard? Full sun or shade? We have a wide range of stunning native Australian plants just for you! Whatever you're looking, visit the Plant Pop-Up Sale to find it. Prices start from $5. 

Location & Parking. 
The Nursery is adjacent to the Southern entrance of the Australian PlantBank, located on Cunningham Drive. The Nursery is normally closed to the public, where it will be adequately sign-posted across the two-day event. The Nursery can be accessed from the P2 and P3 carparks. For more information please visit: Getting here & Map.  

Please Bring a Box or Bag
There will be re-usable plant bags for sale for $2.50 to take home your purchases, however we encourage customers to bring boxes, bags and even personal trolleys to take your precious plants home with you.
