On Thursday, May 13, we will offer a pre-sale Zoom class, to fill you in on some of the wonderful plant offerings you will find at the sale this year. You must pre-register for this free Zoom presentation, during which you will learn, in advance, a little bit about some of the species we will feature. This will surely whet your appetite and get you excited about the gardening season. Ann DeBolt, a botanist and Orton Botanical Garden board member, will teach this class.

Our focus is on drought-tolerant plants and Idaho Native plants for your
landscape. We also offer many plants for sale that attract pollinators.
Take a free tour of the garden to view these beautiful, sun-loving plants in our landscape and the many pollinators that visit them when in bloom. Our plant sale and open house is timed for when the most plants are in bloom in the garden.
No appointment or registration is needed for the plant sale and open house.
Class registration is $30.00 or $25.00 for garden members. To register click the "PayPal" button below and enter in fee amount.
The Orton Botanical Garden holds an Open House and Plant Sale the last two weekends in May each year. If you missed the sale and open house, or just want to see what some of these plants look like growing in the Garden, we will offer a guided tour with that in mind. This tour will be a great opportunity to ask questions and tour with a knowledgeable gardener. We will split up into groups of 15 or so, should the need arise. For this reason, registration is required, and a $5 donation is recommended, to be dropped into the Donation Box when you arrive. This event is free for members, but we would still like you to register. Ann DeBolt, a botanist from Boise and Orton Botanical Garden board member, will lead the tour. Other board members will assist as needed. To register for the tour click here.
On June 26, 2021 Hospice Visions, Inc. will hold their annual butterfly release at Orton Botanical Garden. The program will start at 11:00 a.m.
