New! A Garden in Your Arms

This year we are excited to feature a new community project, in collaboration with two-thirds for the birds, known as A Garden in Your Arms. This initiative features site-specific plant lists from local designers created with pollinators in mind. View the lists here. Use these lists and mini-designs to shop during the Plant Sale and enhance your gardens with pollinator-friendly patches. Designers featured include Deborah Munson, Page Dickey and Robert Reimer. We are excited to encourage the whole community to plant a Garden in Your Arms and share their progress on social media this summer by tagging BBG and using the hashtag #agardeninyourarms

Traditionally held on Mother’s Day weekend, the Plants-and-Answers Plant Sale began in 1977 as BBG’s harbinger of spring for gardeners in the Berkshires and beyond. This year’s sale carries on the tradition of supplying the very best robust plants for landscape and container gardens, along with a wide selection of organic vegetable and herb plants. Featured are a selection of plants which attract bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, moths and other pollinators. The Garden’s signature cone-shaped hanging container arrangements will also be available. 

Berkshire Botanical Garden is a COVID compliant facility and follows guidelines established by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.
