Friday-Sunday, May 15th-17th -- 9:00 a.m.-5 p.m.
2015 marks White Flower Farm's tenth annual sale of Tomato and other vegetable seedlings otherwise known as The Great Tomato Celebration!
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 Retail Store. We chose this date because it's the ideal time for planting in our area, meaning that 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 15th, Saturday, May 16th and Sunday, May 17th, 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, Chard, and berry bushes.
Our Tomato offering will include conventionally grown and grafted plants. The majority of seedlings are in 3" pots. The varieties will 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!
In addition to plants, there will be a wide selection of fertilizers, mulch, containers, ties, stakes, and more.
