Fall Plant Sale
September 24, 2022 @ 9:00 am - 1:30 pm
Shop a great selection of interesting and hard-to-find plants at Historic Oakland Foundation’s Fall Plant Sale! The sale will take place at Oakland Cemetery’s Beaumont Allen Greenhouse on Saturday, September 24 with a special members-only presale on Friday, September 23.
Reserve Your Spot
So that customers don’t have to wait in long lines, we have implemented a ticketing system to reserve a time slot. The reservation time slots on Saturday, September 24 are
- 9:00 a.m. to 10:30 a.m.
- 10:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m.
- 12:00 p.m. to 1:30 p.m.
Reservations are $10 and are good for one or two people. You will receive a credit of $10 off your purchase when you check out. (You’ll receive a credit of your purchase total if your purchase is less than $10 and any remainder will be considered a donation to Historic Oakland Foundation. Offer excludes tax).
Each customer may reserve one time slot and will have 90 minutes to shop. Those arriving late will have the remainder of their time slot to shop. Again, each reservation is good for up to two shoppers.
HOF Member Presale
Historic Oakland Foundation members will get the first pick of the Fall Plant Sale inventory on Friday, September 23 from 3:00 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. during a special members-only presale. Reservations are required for the presale. We have emailed our members a link to make reservations.
Here’s how the plant sale will work
Arrive five to ten minutes early so that you can check in and queue before your time slot begins. Signs will indicate where to line up.
- The attendant will allow you to enter when the previous group has completed shopping.
- A holding area will be available where you may gather your plants before checking out.
- Each plant will have a colored stake in the pot that corresponds to a sale price. Simply pull the colored stakes and take them to the cashier when you check out.
- We will have two cashiers and contactless card readers. Please pay with a card or your phone for this sale. NO CASH.
- All plants are first-come, first served.
You are welcome to drive up to pick up your purchases. Please follow the signs. We ask that you load your purchases as efficiently as possible to allow other customers to drive up.

What if I can’t attend during my time slot?
Each shopper may reserve one time slot and will have 90 minutes to shop. Those arriving late will have the remainder of their time slot to shop. Shoppers without reservations may shop from 12:30 to 1:30 p.m. on Saturday. If you make a reservation and do not attend the sale at all, we will consider the cost of your reservation a donation to Historic Oakland Foundation.
