The Berkshire Botanical Garden’s 46th Annual Plants-and-Answers Plant Sale will be held on May 12 and 13. Curated by BBG’s horticulture staff, this year’s Plant Sale features hundreds of perennials, annuals and vegetables with a focus on diversity and nature-based landscaping, a trend toward gardens that are exuberant and alive, out of the uniform and into something comfortable, and welcoming to birds, bees and butterflies.

Here's a list of the plants that will be available.

As always, the popular “Ask Me” staff and volunteers will be on hand to provide expert advice. All proceeds from the Plant Sale support the Garden’s horticulture and education programs.

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 that attract bees, hummingbirds, butterflies, moths, and other pollinators.

Garden members receive early buying privileges and a discount on BBG plant purchases. Sale hours for the general public are Friday, May 12, 11 to 5 p.m. and Saturday, May 13, from 9 to 5 p.m. Early buying for members only will be Friday, May 12, from 9 to 11 a.m. The garden will offer free admission and free parking for all visitors.
