The Massachusetts Horticultural Society will hold its annual Gardeners’ Fair and Plant Sale on Sunday, May 19 from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. at the Elm Bank Reservation, 900 Washington St., according to a press release.

The Gardener’s Fair and Plant Sale includes a variety of vendors carrying everything you need to plan, dig, plant, and enjoy your home garden space. The Gardeners' Fair is your opportunity to find rare and unusual perennials, trees and shrubs; ready-to-plant herbs and vegetables; and tomato varieties by the dozens. It's also a chance to hear talks by an expert, find unique garden tools, garden ornaments and accessories, as well as other gardening necessities.

The Fair features White Flower Farm's The Great Tomato Celebration in addition to the Society Row Plant Sale and specialty vendors to help you get your gardens ready for the season. It’s fun for the whole family, including special lectures.

Our sponsor, White Flower Farm, invites you to join their Great Tomato Celebration, where you can choose sturdy tomato plants of more than 80 varieties, ranging from heirlooms to the ever-popular hybrid beefsteak, and everything in between. If you're confused by all the choices, they'll have experts on hand to offer advice on flavor, yield, disease resistance and planting instructions. White Flower Farm will also have a large selection of herbs and vegetable seedlings, plus planting implements.

There will be representatives from the American Begonia Society, American Rhododendron Society, Gesneriad Society and Hosta Society, among others.

Barbara Pierson, Nursery Manager at White Flower Farm in Litchfield, Connecticut, will give a talk several times over the course of the day on containers and raised-bed gardening. She'll provide tips on bed preparation and season-long care.
