NYBG's 2018 Garden Art & Antiques Fair

Spring is a popular time for fairs and sales of all kinds, and when my busy schedule allows, I always try to attend a few of my favorites. If you’re in the New York City area this weekend, please try to stop at the annual Garden Art & Antiques Fair at the New York Botanical Garden. It features a variety of wonderful plants, trees, hard-to-find perennials, herbs, and annuals from some of the finest growers, as well as decorative art and fine garden antiques.

Earlier this week, I attended the event’s Benefit Preview Party and Collectors’ Plant Sale. This year, nearly 30 of the country’s leading exhibitors showcased their garden antiques for purchase. Kevin Sharkey and I also signed copies of our book, “Martha's Flowers: A Practical Guide to Growing, Gathering, and Enjoying”.

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. Enjoy these photos.
