The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens’ PLANT NATIVE/EAT FRESH plant sale will be held on one day only, Saturday, May 10th from 10:00 a.m. – 4:00 p.m. As in years past, the plant sale will be hosted by University of Connecticut Certified Master Gardeners who will guide you in choosing the right plant for the right place in your garden.

For the first time, Scalzi Riverwalk Volunteers and other UCONN Master Gardeners have grown hundreds of native plants, shrubs and trees for your gardens. By teaming up with Connecticut’s leading producer of native plants, Earth Tones Nurseries, the Bartlett Arboretum Plant Native/Eat Fresh sale will offer you a wide variety of indigenous, sustainable plants which support the local ecosystem and provide food and shelter for birds, butterflies and other desirable wildlife. Additionally, Certified Master Gardeners who tend the herb, vegetable and perennial gardens at the Bartlett Arboretum will be offering “Bartlett Arboretum Grown” organic herbs and vegetables as well as beautiful native perennial plants.

Learn why planting native is so important!! Lisa & Kyle from Earth Tones Nursery will also be on hand for a talk about planting natives in the Silver Education Center.

If you or your Mother aren’t gardeners, take home a houseplant grown by Certified Master Gardeners in their home nurseries. Instructions included!

The plant sale is a great day to explore the Bartlett Arboretum! For your convenience, Children’s Day Camp will be held in the children’s classroom or in Connecticut’s first outdoor Nature Explore Classroom depending upon the weather. With 93 acres including a greenhouse, hiking trails, wetland ecosystems, Champion Trees and the Melquist Rhododendron Garden, you’ll find a variety of natural environments where you can play, meditate, learn or all three!

The Bartlett Arboretum and Gardens are located at 151 Brookdale Road, Stamford, one mile north of the Merritt Parkway off of High Ridge Road, exit 35.
Proceeds from the Plant Native/Eat Fresh Plant Sale and other events enable Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens to offer outstanding educational opportunities for people of all ages including students attending Stamford Public Schools. The Bartlett Arboretum also serves at-risk inner city children through both onsite and outreach initiatives and is known for its adult education programs in both Spanish and English. Additionally, Certified Master Gardeners offer the seasonal, Monday – Thursday plant clinic for gardeners during the summer months.
The Bartlett Arboretum & Gardens is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization.
