TICONDEROGA-Just in time for the spring, the King's Garden will hold its annual pre-season plant sale Saturday, May 21, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Visitors will enjoy the first blooms of the season while browsing the many unique perennials available within the garden walls. Staff and volunteers will be available to answer questions and dig visitor's selections.
There is no admission charge to attend the plant sale and visitors are encouraged to bring their own bags, boxes or bins. All proceeds support the King's Garden.
New this year is the opportunity to purchase premium potted annuals and vegetables, including many varieties of heirloom tomatoes. The Perennial Plant Association's perennial of the year, Amsonia hubrechtii, or Arkansas Blue Star, will also be available.
The King's Garden is a restored pleasure garden located on the grounds of Fort Ticonderoga. Tours, educational programs, and demonstrations highlight the beauty and history of the garden throughout the season. The Discovery Gardens outside the walls and acres of manicured grounds offer an idyllic setting for exploration and relaxation.
The King's Garden is open June 1 through Columbus Day from 9:30 a.m. to 5 p.m.
