Member’s Day

November 2 2019 · 8:00am  – 2:00pm


You, our Members, are the reason for so much of what Selby Gardens does, and each November we celebrate you! Please join us for an interesting and informative annual meeting followed by the opportunity to buy discounted plants. The gates open to Members at 8 AM and the meeting begins promptly at 9 AM. Plant sale begins immediately following the meeting.

After the meeting members can be first to purchase additional plants before the Members-only Plant Sale opens to the public at 12 PM. PLUS…the Garden Shop will have a special 25% OFF sale (NOTE: No additional discounts for members, volunteers or staff). Enjoy the Gardens on a day dedicated to YOU!

MEMBERS, PLEASE NOTE: The meeting is sold out, but all members may still partake in the Member’s Only plant sale at 10 a.m.

Book Sale
Members will also have the opportunity to purchase used books on topics including orchid propagation and taxonomy, as well as southern gardening, natural history, Florida native plant identification, and general botany.

Groundworks Boutique

Groundworks is a program created by the Designing Women Boutique. Selby Gardens is one of eight partnering organizations that will receive 60 percent of the proceeds from consigned items. We ask that you donate your designer fashions, accessories, and art to be sold at Designing Women Boutique with proceeds supporting Selby Gardens, a world-class center for education, research, and conservation.
