Thank you to everyone that helped support us over the years.

Due to an anticipated increase in research and teaching use for spring 2020, it is great sadness and heavy heart that 2019 is our last spring plant sale.

The UVM Greenhouse Facilities are located on three sites in Burlington and South Burlington, Vermont.  We serve the research, teaching, and outreach needs of many departments at the university.

Second Annual UVM Greenhouse Saturday Plant Sale, May 11th

On Saturday, May 11th, UVM’s Campus Greenhouse will open its doors to the public for our Second Annual Saturday Plant Sale from 9 a.m. until 4 p.m.  You may already know that our greenhouses have a reputation for high quality hanging baskets, Proven Winner® potted annuals, flower and veggie 6-packs.  Our 2019 additions include Dalinova Texas and Icaris dahlias, Supercal Crimson Red petunia and Rockin Fuschia Salvia, to name a few.  You will find 6-packs of bedding plants, culinary herbs, peppers and our famous tomato combo 6-packs.

Most importantly, remember Sunday, May 12th is Mother’s Day!

Parking is free (Jeffords lot on the weekend)!   There is no need to feed the meters in the visitor parking areas.

Follow directions to UVM’s Campus Greenhouse or Davis Student Center. The greenhouse is located on the Davis Circle between Aiken Hall and Jeffords Hall (at the southern end of Stafford Hall).

If you have questions please email or call (802) 656-0465. The greenhouse is open to the public Monday through Friday, 8:30 a.m. until 4:30 p.m. 

2019 Garden Spot Program

It is with great regret and sadness that we have to announce that we have had to suspend the Garden Space Program indefinitely.

We have had an influx of research and teaching projects due to some recent faculty hiring. The upcoming 2018-2019 winter-spring season is looking even more active with large research projects, more than we have hosted in the last ten years. The increased activity will impact all of the Greenhouse Facilities. With available space predicted to be critically low during the majority of the spring growing season we have reluctantly decided to suspend the Garden Space Program.

The Main Campus Greenhouse is always open to visitors.
