Rare Plant Auction

Every plant – the rare and the not so rare- has a story to tell. Join us in celebrating those stories, and in creating a few of your own, at the Rare Plant Auction®.  Proceeds help TheDCH to plant trees, build community gardens and enhance public green spaces across Delaware. You don’t need to have a green thumb, just an interest in the environment and, of course, an appreciation for a good story.


The 2014 Rare Plant Auction will be held on Saturday, April 26th at Longwood Gardens in Kennett Square, Pennsylvania.

I’ve learned so much and made so many friends and acquaintances while working on the grounds, serving on various committees, and preparing for the Rare Plant Auction.
