Just in time for spring planting (and Mother’s Day!), DUG’s Spring Plant Sale is back with organic flower, herb, and vegetable starts, compost, straw, and more!
Join us on Friday and Saturday, May 6th and 7th, from
10 am-3 pm at The Posner Center (1031 33rd St. Denver, CO 80205). We’ll have everything you’ll need to get prepared for your best garden yet while celebrating the beginning of planting season and all things gardening!
On Saturday, we’ll have live music with DJ CAVEM, along with a bilingual family activity from 11 AM -12 PM (with our friends at CSU Extension) where we will learn what plants need to grow in Colorado. We will be making our own pots and planting several vegetable seeds!
Bring your extra tools, unneeded garden supplies, and surplus seeds for our ‘Sustainability Swap’!
We’ll be hosting the Sustainability Swap throughout the plant sale. Bring gently used or new items that you no longer need to find a new home or exchange them for something else that catches your eye!
This year for the first time, DUG is offering a limited selection of trees and perennials as a part of the Plant Sale! These are some of the same plants that we are using as a part of our new Food Forest Initiative, and are all selected to be disease-resistant and well-adapted to the Colorado climate. Most plants will come ‘bare root.’
Bare root plants are the most economical way to add perennials to your yard or garden, but they require careful handling. You will receive the plant with its roots wrapped in plastic and moist paper–be prepared to plant it as soon as possible, unless you can keep it in a cool, dark place. The sooner you can plant, the more likely the tree will be to survive and thrive!
Bare Root Trees and Berries:
North Star Pie Cherry – $40
Moonglow Pear -$40
Summercrisp Pear – $40
Enterprise Apple – $40
Fall Gold Everbearing Raspberry – $10
Thornless Boysenberry – $15

Denver Urban Gardens and its staff and board honor the land on the unceded territories of the Tséstho’e (Cheyenne), Hinono’eino’ biito’owu’ (Arapaho), Núu-agha-tʉvʉ-pʉ̱ (Ute), and Očhéthi Šakówiŋ, as well as 48+ other tribes with ties to this region.
May our stewardship of this land support the collective work to dismantle ongoing legacies of oppression and inequities as well as recognize the current and future contributions of indigenous communities.
