Hours are 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, Nov. 18 and 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 19.

Sale

All houseplants will be 33 percent off.

“We already have inexpensive plants,” said Luke Schiavone, houseplant specialist at Mischler’s. “Our three-inch pots are $3.29 Then you take 33 percent off–that’s a great deal!”

Most of the houseplants are propagated on site, so the staff can make sure they are setting out healthy, great looking specimens.

Mischler’s has houseplants that are small, or medium or large enough to set on the floor. The pot size ranges from 2 inches in diameter to 3 gallons.

“We have plants for beginners to experienced gardeners,” Schiavone said. “There are easy-to-grow plants and plants that need more care.”

Plant Prognosis

Take your concerns about houseplants to Mischler’s and their professional staff will offer advice. You can take a photo of your plant or bring it in to the shop.

Transplant Station

Pot up the houseplants you buy at Mischler’s as well as plants you already own– for free!– at the DIY Transplant Station at Mischler’s. Take your own container or buy a decorative container at Mischler’s.

You provide the labor and Mischler’s will provide the soil and a potting bench. The staff will clean up for you afterward!

Behind-the-scenes tour

Learn about houseplant production during a tour. Schiavone will discuss how the staff takes cuttings to grow more plants. You can see the mist tent and all the other steps needed from the beginning to the point where the plants are ready to be sold to gardeners.

The tour will be given at 10 a.m., 1 p.m. and 3 p.m. on Friday and Saturday. Space is limited. Please sign up in advance by calling 716-632-1290.

Gift for you

Stop in during Houseplant Weekend and receive a tradescantia, also known as wandering dude, in a 3-inch pot. It’s Mischler’s way of thanking you for shopping your local florist and greenhouse.

  1. Yes, Mischlers does greenhouse tours for garden clubs and other groups.

    It’s typically during the Summer/Early Fall: winter gets dark fast and Spring we’re planting and busy with customer service.

    Call 716 632-1290 to set up something for 2023.

  2. Would you ever give this houseplant tour to a garden club? I am looking for places and programs for our garden club for 2023 and this sounds like a fun and informative program!
