How it Works:

 

The 2021 Spring Plant Sale will have the same protocols as last season with on-line ordering only with a set pickup time for your plants in the Visitor Center parking lot.

-Step 1: Add plants to your cart and submit your payment. If you are a PHA member, be sure to use code MV WILDTYPE to receive a 10% discount (see below).

-Step 2: During checkout, please choose the “SCHEDULE FOR LATER” pickup option and select a date and time. Please do not choose “as soon as possible”; we require a specifically scheduled time to ensure safe pickup.

-Step 3: When your pickup date arrives, come to the Visitor Center parking lot during your designated time to retrieve your order at our contactless pickup area. Clear signage in our parking lot will direct you to the right spot. 

-Step 4: Enjoy your plants!

 

Member Discount
PHA members receive a 10% discount. Members may use code MV WILDTYPE to receive a discount. If you are unsure of your membership status, please email [email protected] with your name and mailing address to request confirmation PRIOR TO placing your order. We cannot apply a discount after your order has been placed.

No Substitutions
If for some reason we cannot fulfill part of your order, we will issue a refund for that portion. We will not make automatic substitutions. All sales are final.

New This Year: Staged Release of Plants
Plants will be released for sale in stages on May 10, May 24 and June 7. The staged release is based on readiness for the sale. 

Also New This Year: Native Plants Sold as Plugs

New this year is the availability of Martha’s Vineyard native plants grown as plugs. They will be released for sale beginning May 24. Please note these plants are grown in expensive nursery trays which we hope to keep using. Plugs will be available in sets of three and will be placed in cardboard boxes in moist mulch and can be held in this fashion for a week to ten days, however, the sooner you plant them the better.
