2018 Plant Sale

plantsale-fbECS’s annual Spring Flower & Plant Sale is back in time for Mother’s Day and Spring planting! Annual bedding flowers, a variety of beautiful hanging baskets, and patio planters will be available from the same vendor that Phipps Conservatory uses (so the plants will be fantastic!). We are also offering organic vegetable and herbs from Garden Dreams, an urban farm and nursery in Wilkinsburg.

Order deadline: Wednesday, April 18, 2018 Tuesday, April 24, 2018. Order below, or print a paper order form and send it in to the school office with your check made out to ECS PCO.

Plants will be available for pick up: THURSDAY, MAY 10, 2018 between 12:00pm and 5:00pm at the ECS UPPER SCHOOL ONLY (829 Milton Street, Pittsburgh, PA 15218). This is different than the usual Friday pick-up in past years. There will only be one day to pick up the plants so please mark this day on your calendar.

Your online order confirmation may list your address as the “shipping address,” but plants will not be shipped. All plants must be picked up on May 10 at ECS Upper School.

If you have any questions, please email plantsale@ecspco.org.
