The NYBG's 25th Anniversary Antique Garden Furniture Fair

Spring is a popular time for fairs and sales of all kinds, and when my schedule allows, I always try to attend a few of my favorites.

Last week, I went to the Benefit Preview Party and Collectors’ Plant Sale at the New York Botanical Garden’s annual Antique Garden Furniture Fair. This year, nearly 30 of the country’s leading exhibitors showcased their finest garden antiques for purchase. The Collectors’ Plant sale featured hard-to-find trees, shrubs and plants propagated from NYBG collections, and hand-selected for their rarity and charm. The event also included a whimsical honeybee-inspired theme by event designer, Ken Fulk.

It’s a splendid time of year to be at the New York Botanical Garden - not only to enjoy its many fun and interesting events, but to see its stunning gardens and horticultural displays. I hope you take the opportunity to visit the next time you are in the New York City area. Enjoy these photos…
