Plant Sales


The Plant Sales area is open every day the garden is open.

Take home a piece of history by purchasing a plant propagated from the unique living collection at Milner Gardens & Woodland. The Plant Sales area offers a great selection of perennials, trees and shrubs, and native plants.

Plants have been propagated by a dedicated group of volunteers and all proceeds raised help support the operation of the garden. Members receive 10% discount on all plant purchases.

Be sure to check out the special events section and take note of our next spring or fall plant sale fundraiser. It is a great opportunity to pick up some fabulous plants at terrific prices and support this beautiful island gem - Milner Gardens & Woodland.

The Pool House Gift Shop

The Pool House Gift Shop is open each day during the season. You may browse through our good selection of garden-related ornaments, books, cards, stationery and souvenirs.
