At our plant sales, we offer customers plants that work well here. We grow, test, and evaluate plants in the UDBG collection and our academic programs vett the plants. UDBG Friends and Plant Sale Patrons are permitted early entry to the Spring Plant Sale. Patrons of the Spring Plant Sale provide support to our Student Intern Program, helping students to gain hands-on experience, learn skills, build resumes, while also earning monies.
Fall flowering plants are essential pollen and nectar sources for butterflies, birds, and native bees, and as plants that will set seed for wintering birds. "All of these creatures partially depend on your garden to provide these plants." Dr. Douglas Tallamy, UD Entomology & Wildlife Ecology Professor.
