Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 20th–22nd: The Great Tomato Celebration 9:00am - 5:00pm
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 20th–22nd: The Great Tomato Celebration 9:00am - 5:00pm

Every year in the end of May (the weekend before Memorial Day to be exact), White Flower Farm brings its vast selection of Tomato and vegetable seedlings from the greenhouses and puts them up for sale on the lawn next to our Store. We chose this date because it's the ideal time for planting in our area -- the threat of frost has usually passed and it's the best time to get edible plants in the ground to give them the longest possible growing season.

The sale will be open for three days -- Friday, May 20th, Saturday, May 21st and Sunday, May 22nd, each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

Location: White Flower Farm, 167 Litchfield Road, Morris, CT 06763

What's For Sale?

This year we will be offering over 100 varieties of Tomato plants, plus many varieties of Peppers, Herbs, Lettuce, Squash, Cucumbers, Eggplants, Kale, and more.

Most of the vegetable seedlings are in 3" pots. The varieties include heirloom and hybrid selections. Customers will be able to select Tomatoes with red, yellow, purple, black, striped, white and multi-colored skin in sizes ranging from the smallest "currant" Tomatoes to the largest beefsteaks.

Shop early for the best selection! Click here for a list of Tomato varieties being offered. Please note that this list is subject to change and that we cannot guarantee availability of specific varieties.

Growing Supplies

In addition to plants, there will be a wide selection of fertilizers, mulch, containers, ties, stakes, and more.

More Than Just a Plant Sale

White Flower Farm's staff experts will be on hand each day to answer your questions. For those looking for more information about growing Tomatoes and other vegetables, there will be lectures and demonstrations on Friday and Saturday. Specific times and topics will be posted shortly.

Shop for Plants and Stay for Lunch

For customers who make a long trip for this sale (and those who don't!), we are pleased to announce that Ciesco Catering will be selling breakfast and lunch food for all three days of the event. Enjoy the best local, fresh menu while you shop, or plan to get a sandwich and stay for a lecture.
