Spring Open House and Plant Sale (2018)

April 21, 2018 @ 5:00 am - 11:00 am

The doors are open! This year, for our annual Spring Plant Sale, we’re throwing the doors wide open on the 1731 Bartram House for visitors to wander through on their own. Come see all the house as you’ve never seen it before and pack a picnic!

As ever, the Spring Plant Sale will feature a unique selection of heritage roses, pond plants, historic boxwoods, vegetable and herbs starts, as well as beautiful native perennials, shrubs, and trees. Horticulturalists will be on hand to answer questions and share garden-planning advice. Check out the full array of plants available for purchase this year! Bartram’s Garden Members enjoy first pick of this year’s fabulous selection of plants during our Member Preview Party on Friday, April 20, plus discounts on plant and Welcome Center purchases!

**** SATURDAY BOATING CANCELLED **** Due to recent cold weather, the water temperature is still too cold to safely be out on the river. We expect the river to warm up enough by next Saturday -April 28th -to open the boating season.
