2019 gardenKitchener Bulb and Plant sale to be bigger and better than ever.

Please note the change in dates from May 25 to Jun 1 due to the late growing season.

Mark Jun 1st on your calendar. Its our annual Bulb and Plant Sale.

Doors open at 8:00 a.m. for members and at 10:00 a.m. for non-members (the early bird sale, specifically for members, is another benefit of belonging to the Kitchener Horticultural Society as you get first choice on the bulbs and plants).

We will have over 20,000 bulbs – 41 varieties of tulips, hyacinths and daffodils - and hundreds of plants (herbs, annuals and perennials) for sale.

Members also get preferred pricing.

This year we have made significant changes on how you can purchase your bulbs and plants. We have moved entirely to the “Shop and Go” concept where all bulbs and plants are on display outside the Garden House. No more lining up to take a number - you simply walk through the shopping area and pickup your purchases. Master Gardeners will be available to answer your questions on the various plants to make it easier to decide which to buy. We will have two outside pay stations – one for cash and one for debit/credit purchases. We believe these changes will make it easier and much faster than it has been in the past to pick up your bulbs/plants and be on your way.

Dirt Cheap will be onsite if you want to pick up soil/mulch (or place an order). Sharp My Knife will be parked right outside the Garden House so bring your garden tools or any knives that need sharpening.

And, new this year, to make your shopping experience even more enjoyable, we have arranged for a food truck - Dundee Drivin’ Diner Crew – to be at the Sale. So, if you want breakfast, lunch, coffee or a snack the food truck is going to be right there.

A couple of hints – if you are intending to buy dozens of bulbs/plants bring your own bin, wagon or cart and take it with you through the shopping area. We will cordon off two or three parking spots near the exit/payment stations to allow short term pickup of purchases. And, keep your membership card handy as this will give you early bird access and preferred pricing. You can renew or buy your membership at the sale starting at 7:30 am (or renew on-line before the sale).
