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. 

Allandale Farm features a wide selection of heirloom and hybrid tomato plants grown right on the farm. Pepper, 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; tomato varieties by the dozens; and also a chance to hear talks by an expert, find unique garden tools, garden ornaments and other gardening accessories.

Plant Society sales are an integral part of the Gardeners’ Fair. New Englanders take their gardens seriously. The most passionate gardeners (whether of the indoor or outdoor persuasion) join a plant society dedicated to the pleasure and pursuit of a particular genus. Plants are swapped, exchanged and bartered at plant society meetings. At the Gardeners’ Fair, they are sold to discerning visitors looking for the great addition to their gardens. The Rhododendron Society, Hosta Society, Cactus and Succulent Society, Daylily Society, and Miniature Plant Society have been well represented in prior years.

Vendors from around New England will be selling anything you can think of to help you plant your dream garden.
