Allerton’s 9th Annual Plant Sale Fundraiser is April 29 – May 1! Grab your gardening enthusiasm and head to Allerton’s Main Parking Lot to purchase your annuals, herbs, veggies, perennials, natives, arranged hanging baskets, Allerton Bluebells (limited!) and more! (Cash or credit accepted.)

You’ll find a variety of quality plants to spruce up your outdoor and indoor spaces, while also supporting Allerton! 100% of the profits will go directly to maintaining the Park and our public programs. 

Friday, April 29 (5-9pm), Saturday, April 30 (9am-5pm), & Sunday, May 1 (9am-5pm)

The Piatt County Master Gardeners, Allerton staff, and volunteers will be onsite throughout the  weekend to answer your questions about plant selection and care. Friday night only will feature additional festivities including live music, a food truck, cash bar, and a Container Planting Workshop (free; registration required) led by Allerton’s Park Supervisor Peter Lichtenberger.

Do you have plant or gardening questions you’d like answered before the sale? The Master Gardeners Help Desk is committed to providing answers to all your questions! Simply fill out this form and a volunteer will get back to you with a research-based answer!

We will also host a Curbside Plant Sale* (Dates/Details TBA) where you can order your plants online and pick them up curbside.

*Please note: we cannot guarantee that the product selection available on the online store will be identical to the selection available at the On-Site Plant Sale.

If you have questions or will need disability-related accommodations in order to participate, please email Micah at
