Growing Friends Plant Sales

Opening times:
Monday - Friday 11am - 2pm
Saturday - 10am - 2pm
*Commencing in May* Sunday - 10am - 2pm

At Growing Friends Plant Sales, you can shop for a great range of native and exotic. Many of these are rare and hard-to-find plants. Browse a list of selected plants sold at the nursery throughout the year. Please note, availability is subject to the season where not all plants will be in stock. If you are looking for something specific please contact Foundation & Friends on 02 9231 8182 Monday - Thursday 11am - 2pm or email us.

Many of the plants have been propagated by volunteers from the living collections in your Botanic Gardens: the Royal Botanic Garden Sydney, the Australian Botanic Garden Mount Annan and the Blue Mountains Botanic Garden Mount Tomah.

Proceeds from plant sales assist Foundation and Friends of the Botanic Gardens to continue our support of the Botanic Gardens, with their vital work in science, conservation, horticulture and education.  

Volunteer with Growing Friends
Commencing in autumn 2023 we are going to be open for Sunday trading.  If you would like to volunteer on Sundays please register your interest with us. You will be fully trained operationally ahead of time, with training days on the 19 & 26 March, and April 2, from 9:30am till 11:30am.  Potential new volunteers can also register for a Behind The Scenes Tour with Greg Lamont, to learn where the plants come from and how they are propagated.  This is a unique opportunity to be a part of Growing Friends Plant Sales.

Looking for the perfect gift for a plant lover in your life?

Give them a Growing Friends Gift Voucher so they can choose their own perfect plant. With nearly all plants being propagated from the Botanic Gardens' Living Collections, they'll be able to take home a special piece of the iconic Gardens.
