“Tried & True. . .and New”
Curated by BBG’s horticulture staff, this year’s Plant Sale features plants chosen for their ornamental value and their proven reliability in the Berkshires and surrounding areas. The collection will include hundreds of perennials, annuals and vegetables with a focus on diversity. Hanging baskets and carnivorous plants will also be available. Also, 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. Garden members receive early buying privileges and a discount on BBG plant purchases. Free admission and free parking.
Traditionally held on Mother’s Day weekend, the Plants and Answers Be-a-Better-Gardener 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. Timed ticketing is required and masks are mandatory while on the grounds, regardless of vaccination status. Reserve here!
