Summit, NJ Reeves-Reed Arboretum, a veritable museum of plants and trees, is opening up its gardens for a plant sale featuring woody specimens, plants, perennials, annuals and vegetables grown here at the Arboretum. This is your opportunity to purchase unusual, hard-to-find plants, and also benefit from the expertise and knowledge of the Arboretum's horticulture staff, headed by Horticulture Director Marc Montefusco and Lead Horticulturist Julieanne Frascinella, both on hand to answer any gardening questions and to make planting recommendations.
A special "members preview" sale will take place on Friday, May 19, from 2 pm to 5 pm, exclusively for Arboretum members. The general public will be invited to come by on Saturday, May 20, from 9 am to 2 pm. All proceeds from the plant sale will go towards the Arboretum's budget for grounds maintenance and improvements.
The Arboretum is often called a "Summit treasure." An added bonus to this year's plant sale will be RRA's first "barn sale" where lucky plant shoppers might also be able to unearth a yet to be realized special Arboretum treasure from our past. Who knows what bounty is in store from our basement and attic!
So don't miss out on this once-in-a-season opportunity to purchase plants tried and true from the Arboretum's collection, as well as rare specimens and other specialty items.
