Gardeners’ Fair and Plant Sale at Elm Bank
May 12, 2018 @ 9:00 am - 3:00 pm$5.00
Join us at Mass Hort’s annual Gardeners’ Fair and Plant Sale!
The Gardeners’ Fair is an opportunity to find rare and unusual perennials, trees and shrubs; ready-to-plant herbs and vegetables; and tomato varieties by the dozens. The fair will feature tomatoes by Allandale Farm and the Herb Society Plant Sale.
It’s also a chance to hear talks by experts, find unique garden tools, garden ornaments and accessories, as well as other gardening necessities. A number of vendors will be on site, offering everything you need to plan, dig, plant, and enjoy your home garden space.
The Gardeners’ Fair provides fun and shopping for the whole family! Mass Hort will sponsor children’s programs and garden tours. Don’t miss the Wellesley Band who will entertain at 1:00 p.m.; the New England Unit of the Herb Society will have their annual plant sale; and Tomato Lectures by Allendale Farm in the morning. Other plant societies will be there with exciting plants for sale. The Mass Master Gardener Association will host their Ask a Master Gardener booth and offer pH soil testing.
Mass Hort will also be hosting a Tool Sale (please consider donating your tools and contact [email protected]) and the Library will be selling duplicate titles from their collection.
The event is free for Mass Hort members, and $5 per car for the general public.
