2017 Plant Sale Keeps Children's Heart Growing!!!!!
The 2017 Plant Sale was another record year for our organization! Sponsored by Iowa American Water, Ryan Companies and Mel Foster Company, the event is the marque fundraiser for our organization. Established more than 25 years ago, the event includes pre-order and retail purchases of annual bedding plants by the flat and hanging baskets. The week long retail portion of the event included three locations at: Northwest Bank Tower in Davenport, UnityPoint Trinity in Moline, and STC Investments in Macomb.
More than 200 volunteers helped organize this years fundraiser and we couldn't have done it without each and every one of you!!!! From helping unload the semi-trailers, sorting pre-orders, delivering pre-orders to homes and companies, and assisting retail customers, our volunteers are what makes this event one that continues to grow and prosper for our organization!!!

For 27 years Big Brothers Big Sisters has hosted its annual Plant Sale fundraiser. The event has grown over the years to become not only a family tradition but also one of the largest plant sales in the midwest!! We now have three retail locations (Davenport, Moline and Macomb) and robust pre-order program for individuals, schools, groups and businesses. We expect to have available for purchase this year over 3,500 flats of flowers and 2,500 hanging baskets, just in time to welcome spring and celebrate Mother's Day.
Pre-Order Purchase Process:

Pre-ordering allows you, a group or your company to pre-order plant selections ahead of retail sales week.
Pre-order options: Individual, group or corporate orders.
You can order for yourself, a group (with co-workers, family or friends) or as a company/organization. Individual orders are the only type of order you can place using our online system. Group and company/organization orders will need to use our hard copy order form (click the quick links above to download and print). Click here for helpful hints for group orders.
When the big week arrives, your flowers are the first pulled, sorted and prepared for pick up at your prefeered retail site or delivered directly to your home/business. You are guaranteed accuracy of your order and we stand behind the quality of our products!
Not sure what type of flowers you like or need for your home/business? Not a problem! You can view the variety and colors of our flowers on our online shopping catalog or within our PDF version of the order form. Each source provides a visual of the flowers as well as the recommended environment the flowers would best thrive (sun, partial sun or shade).
