The gardens at Mystic Seaport are renowned for their beauty and the wide variety of flowering plants.
Many of the plants you see on the Museum’s 19 acres are grown in our greenhouse, from seed or seedling. In fact, more than 200 varieties of annuals, vegetables, herbs, and perennials are growing in the greenhouse. Each year the Facilities Department holds a Plant Sale to benefit the program.
This year the sale will be open to the public from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Thursday, May 18, and 8 a.m. to 2 p.m. Friday, May 19 at the Greenhouse on Rossie Pentway.
For vegetables, there are ‘Early Girl’ and ‘Roma’ tomatoes, yellow squash, and ‘California Wonder’ peppers as well as historical varieties such as ‘Brandywine’ Tomato’ and ‘Southport Red Globe’ Onion.
There are also thyme, dill, basil, and other herbs for sale.
