Fall Native Plant Sale 2021

Summer is closing out and we’re getting ready to welcome Fall here at the Fraser Valley Conservancy with the Fall Native Plant Sale!

We have a wide selection of trees and shrubs that will attract birds and native pollinators to your backyards.

Click on the image below to visit our online store.

In our online shop you can read all about the plants’ characteristics and where they prefer to grow. You can select plants by the type of habitat you have and what you want your seasonal garden to look like.

The focus is on trees and shrubs for this fall sale — more than wildflowers and leafy perennials — but don’t fear, a full selection of the popular perennials will be ready for our Spring sale 2022.


Important Plant Sale Information:

  • All plants must be pre-ordered through the online shop, if you are experiencing challenges with the technology please call the office (604-625-0066) so we can help.

  • Your order will be ready for pick up at an outdoor location in West Abbotsford on Saturday, October 2nd. When you place your order online you will select a one-hour pick-up time window and will be sent exact location details and instructions.

  • FVC staff and volunteers on site will be available to help load plants into your vehicles if needed. There is no delivery service available for this sale.

  • There is limited stock and popular items often sell out, orders are filled as they are received, so don’t delay!


The proceeds from this plant sale are used to restore and protect wild habitats in the Fraser Valley.
