8th Annual New North End Plant Sale at Biben's Ace Hardware

Red Wagon Plants takes its show on the road with the 8th annual New North End Plant Sale! This is a great opportunity to buy our plants without making the trip to Hinesburg. We'll be on site with our plants to answer your gardening questions and help you choose what is right for your garden. 

Our plant sale has become a mini-garden festival of sorts with music from DJ Brunch, wood fired pizza from ONE Hearth, bagged compost for sale from Green Mountain Compost, and burlap bags for mulching your garden from Vermont Community Garden Network.  Come join the fun!

This event is a fundraiser for the Burlington Area Community Gardens Scholarship fund. Your dollars will help hire interpreters and expand garden plots to assist refugees with growing their own food. You can find more information about BACG here.

9th Annual Sweet Potato Slip Sale

Join us for the 9th Annual Sweet Potato Slip Sale at our greenhouses. This event is a fundraiser for the Vermont Community Garden Network. They pot up thousands of sweet potato slips, then we take care of them until the sale by which time they have roots and are ready to get transplanted into the warm soil in your garden. Some of our customers have reported growing sweet potatoes as big as footballs!

We will provide you with booklets full of instructions and recipes, plus we'll have samples of yummy sweet potato dishes. You can meet the great people from VCGN and hear about the powerful community work they do bringing gardens to all parts of our state. 

Burlap bags for mulching your garden paths will be available also as a fundraiser for VCGN.
