Plants and Answers 
Be-a-Better-Gardener Plant Sale

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. More than a thousand woody and herbaceous plants are displayed by habitat including plants for sunny areas, beds and borders, dry areas, plants for the woodland edge, as well as annuals (most grown at BBG), tropicals, vines, divisions of perennials dug from BBG display gardens, organic vegetable and herb plants, and hanging baskets. Featured this year are a selection of flowering shrubs from Spring Meadow Nursery, known for their unusual, trendy stock. In addition, mixed succulent tabletop containers along with the Garden’s popular cone-shaped hanging container arrangements will be available for sale. Many plants are donated by nurseries from throughout the tri-state area. Plant professionals and experts from the Garden's staff will be on hand to answer design questions and provide practical advice on growing and caring for plants. A select group of vendors will offer a variety of services and products, and a book sale and silent auction are scheduled for both days. 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.
