The Western Kentucky Botanical Garden is gearing up for their annual plant sale, which will again be virtual this year. The online sale runs April 18-23, with pickups taking place April 24-25.

Plants can already be viewed on the sale site here, but they can’t be purchased until 8 a.m. Sunday. Customers can view stock photos of each type of plant along with a description and price. 

WKBG Treasurer Diane Bowers said there were a few issues with the site last year, but they’ve ironed out all the kinks and expect a “much smoother process” for those purchasing plants this year.

After making their purchase, customers will be directed to an online form where they can choose a pickup time. To get their order, customers will drive up to a table that contains only their order during their designated time.

Bowers said there will be about 1,500 plants for sale this year.

“We have a bigger variety and a larger number of plants than we’ve ever had,” she said. “If there’s a certain plant you want, get in early because there are certain things a lot of people will be looking for.”

The sale will also feature heirloom tomatoes grown by the Green River Area Master Gardener Association and herbs grown by many plants from the Owensboro Herb Society.
