Ithaca Garden Sale moves to Dryden this year

We've bought a fair number of plants at this sale, and always recommend it.

New Location for Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale (5/14)

Due to ongoing construction at Ithaca High School, this year's annual Spring Garden Fair and Plant Sale will be held at a NEW LOCATION -- the New York State Armory, 1765 Hanshaw Road (off Rt. 13) in Ithaca -- on Saturday, May 14 from 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. The Armory site includes ample and easily accessed parking, a large indoor room for gardening groups, and outdoor space for more than 40 growers and gardening groups that will participate this year. Admission is FREE and visitors are encouraged to bring carts or wagons to aid in transporting their plant purchases to their cars.

The Spring Garden Fair & Plant Sale features a wide variety of vendors from our region who offer specialty plants and gardening advice on topics ranging from growing rock garden plants to selecting native species for the garden. Plants for sale include organically grown and heirloom vegetable transplants, colorful annuals, fragrant herbs, hanging baskets, small flowering shrubs, hardy roses, fruit crops, evergreens, and specialty perennials. Master Gardeners from CCE-Tompkins and other community groups participate in the Fair to raise funds through plant sales, and to create awareness of their programs.

For more information, call Cornell Cooperative Extension of Tompkins County at (607) 272-2292 or email Monika Roth at mr55@cornell.edu. An up-to-date list of participating growers and groups is available online at http://ccetompkins.org/plantsale.
