2023 Plant Sale


Virtually everything in the catalog will be available at the sale itself, though! We look forward to seeing you then!


The 2023 Project Grow Plant Sale will be held on May 20th, from 10:00 am to 2:00 pm at the hoophouse at Dawn Farm, 6633 Stoney Creek Rd., Ypsilanti, 48197.

What's the Same

Every year Project Grow offers hard to find heirloom tomatoes, peppers and basil. This year we are offering 79 varieties of tomatoes, 24 varieties or peppers and 2 varieties of basil. In addition, we will be offering three ornamentals: Rosita lisianthus, Cobalt Dreams delphiniums, and High Scent sweet peas. 

The lisianthus were started in early January, and delphiniums will be started at the end of February. The peppers and basil will be started 10 weeks before the sale and the tomatoes and sweet peas a couple weeks later.  These are large, husky plants sold in 3.5" pots. We are growing them in our hoop house at Dawn Farm so they are already acclimated to cool temperatures, outdoor sunshine and spring breezes.

Please remember, tomatoes, peppers, and basil cannot tolerate freezing temperatures and must be brought inside or protected from late spring frost. Lisianthus, delphiniums and sweet peas are all cold hardy and should be planted out right away.

What's New
The catalog has been significantly improved, which should make your shopping easier.
  • The catalog is now divided into separate sections for each variety of plant we offer (beefsteak tomatoes, cherry tomatoes, hot peppers, basil etc).
  • There is a shopping cart so you can easily keep track of what you have ordered.
  • Please see the Navigating the Catalog section for details.
At this time, we are hoping that COVID precautions will not be needed on the sale day. Of course, those who wish may still wear masks. However, should the situation worsen and public safety becomes an issue, we will return to the practices of the past two year. You will be informed of any required measures via our website, newsletter and social media prior to our sale day.

Please see our catalog for more details about the sale!
