Take home a piece of history by purchasing a plant propagated from the unique living collection at Milner Gardens & Woodland. The Plant Sales area offers a great selection of perennials, trees and shrubs, and native plants.

Plants have been propagated by a dedicated group of volunteers and all proceeds raised help support the operation of the garden. Volunteers are happy to assist you in picking out the perfect plant for you to take home to your garden. Members receive 10% discount on all plant purchases.

Be sure to check out the special events section and take note of our next spring or fall plant sale fundraiser. It is a great opportunity to pick up some fabulous plants at terrific prices and support this beautiful island gem - Milner Gardens & Woodland.
