Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 19–21 The 12th Annual Great Tomato Celebration
Friday, Saturday, Sunday, May 19–21 The 12th Annual 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 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 19, Saturday, May 20 and Sunday, May 21, each day from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m.

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

What's For Sale?

Choose from a wide assortment of heirloom, beefsteak and cherry Tomatoes as well as savory herbs, veggies and gardening products.

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.

Please note: if you plan to use a gift certificate or merchandise credit at our retail location, you must bring it with you. We will not able to retrieve any account information at the event.
