Weekend Garden Extravaganza Celebration Set for Mother’s Day Weekend

Trade Secrets is back and better than ever! The oh-so-popular two-day garden event drawing thousands of garden enthusiasts to Connecticut's Litchfield Hills includes the rare plant and garden antique sale on Saturday, May 13, followed by a self-guided four-garden tour on Mother's Day, Sunday, May 14.

Saturday features over 60 vendors. Garden enthusiasts will find rare plant specimens from specialized growers and some of the nation's best-known small nurseries; and furniture, antiques, cloches, wrought iron fencing, garden statuary and so much more
from the choicest purveyors of garden antiques.

Sunday's garden tour includes four exquisite gardens. The handsome eighteenth century General Ashley House sits on a
breathtakingly romantic piece of land, with lawn and meadow sloping down to a wide and quiet bend on the Housatonic River.
Pom's Cabin Farm is a richly-varied twenty-seven-acre piece of land along the Housatonic River that is nurtured and celebrated by its owner, Dale McDonald, and her dedicated team headed by horticulturist, Robin Zitter.

Over the past fourteen years, Juliet and John Hubbard owners of Coltsfoot Garden have created an enchanting cottage garden around the colonial house that has been in the Hubbard family for almost 100 years.
Trade Secrets founder, Bunny Williams' and husband John Rosselli's beloved garden has been a favorite on tour for the past 16 years. This year Bunny introduces her brand-new woodland studio with its fantastic views of the Litchfield hills.

This year for the first time, due to popular demand, the Garden Tour tickets are limited and will only be sold in advance for $75.
Tickets for Saturday's sale at LionRock Farm in Sharon, CT., can be purchased in advance or day-of. Tickets: Early Bird $125 from 8 – 10 am with continental breakfast; Regular Admission $50 from 10 – 3 pm; and Late Bloomer $25 from 1 – 3 pm. Tickets go on sale April 1st.
