<strong>Friday & Saturday, May 17 & 18 – 9:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.</strong> The 14th Annual Great Tomato Celebration

Every year in the end of May, 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 outdoor sale will be held for just two days this year, Friday, May 17, & Saturday, May 18 in the field adjacent to the White Flower Farm Store. On offer will be more than 100 varieties of Tomato seedlings, including treasured Heirlooms and top-rated modern hybrids (all non-GMO), along with everything else you’ll need for your kitchen garden – from savory herbs and veggie plants to helpful gear and supplies. We're excited to welcome back noted Tomato expert Craig LeHoullier, author of Epic Tomatoes: How to Select and Grow the Best Varieties of All Time. Craig will be on hand for lectures and Q&A on both days. Event hours are daily from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m., rain or shine. Breakfast and lunch will be available for purchase. You are welcome to bring your own wagon or cart to the sale.

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