About the Fair

The Gardeners' Fair and Plant Sale at Massachusetts Horticultural Society at Elm Bank Reservation includes a variety of vendors carrying everything you need to plan, dig, plant, and enjoy your home garden space.  We have combined with the New England Unit of the Herb Society of America to form a new partnership for this event.

Allandale Farm: Featuring a wide selection of heirloom and hybrid tomato plants grown right on the farm! Peppers, eggplants, cucumbers and other starter plants will also be available.

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 heart of the Gardeners' Fair is the plant societies. New Englanders take their gardens seriously and the most passionate gardeners - whether of the indoor or outdoor persuasion - join a plant society dedicated to the pleasure and pursuit of growing a particular genus. At plant society meetings, plants are swapped, exchanged and bartered. At the Gardeners' Fair, they're sold to discerning visitors who are looking for the great addition to their garden.

What is special about The Gardeners’ Fair?

With every plant society purchase comes a wealth of advice on care and propagation. There will be representatives from the American Begonia Society, American Rhododendron Society, Gesneriad Society and Hosta Society, among others.  Many of the local chapters of specialist plant societies will continue to offer their own plant varieties including unusual and popular cultivars that Society Row has provided for more than 75 years.

Our  Vendors
