Spring Plant Sale Member Presale
April 8 @ 3:00 pm - 7:30 pm
Historic Oakland Foundation members are invited to a special members-only preview of our Spring Plant Sale on April 8 at Oakland’s Beaumont Allen Greenhouse. The Spring Plant Sale will be open to the general public by reservation on Saturday, April 9.
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 first reservation time slot on Friday, April 9 is at 3:00 p.m. The last will begin at 6:00 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. Face masks and social distancing will be required in accordance with the CDC guidelines as of the day of the sale.
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. Face masks and social distancing are recommended.
- 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 remote/contactless card readers. Please pay 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. The road in front of the greenhouse will be open for one-way traffic, and there will be a designated pull-off area for plant loading. 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. Saturday. If you have made a reservation and do not attend the sale at all, we will consider the cost of your reservation a donation to Historic Oakland Foundation.
What if the Spring Plant Sale is rained out?
If the Spring Plant Sale is rained out, we will reschedule the sale for Saturday, April 15 from 9:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. We will email reservation holders if the event is rescheduled.
