Help celebrate the opening of The Polly Hill Arboretum Visitor Center with the annual Memorial Day Plant Sale. Whether you’re a budding gardener or a seasoned veteran, this plant sale will have something for you. Arboretum staff have chosen and grown plants that are noted not only for their superior ornamental qualities but also for their adaptability to Martha’s Vineyard. They plan to offer a selection of trees, shrubs, and perennials including many Island natives. Check out for a plant sale preview. Plants will be for sale all season long.  You may also call them at 508-693-9426.

And while you’re there, stop by the Far Barn between 11 am and noon for Great Plants For Vineyard Gardens. Join executive director Tim Boland for this plant sale preview as he gives an illustrated presentation featuring some of the distinctive plants featured in the plant sale. Tim will highlight the ornamental attributes of many of the plants and provide tips on successful culture and garden use. He will begin with a talk in the Far Barn, followed by a walking tour of the grounds to view plants growing in the Arboretum’s collections.  Free.
