12th Annual Garden Festival Specialty Plants & Garden Ornaments Sale  

Saturday, May 2, 2020 | 10 am - 4 pm

Out of an abundance of concern for the well-being of our guests and community, and in keeping with the CDC’s guidance
to practice social distancing, we are canceling Garden Festival. 
Join us for Garden Festival 2021 on May 1st, 2021. Ladew’s 50th Anniversary. It will be a spectacular celebration of everything garden-related. 

Now in its 12th year, Ladew’s annual Garden Festival has become the most anticipated specialty plant, garden ornaments, and antiques sale in the region. An exclusive collection of vendors from across the eastern seaboard will offer hard-to-find perennials and annuals, unusual exotics and container specialties, decorative garden furniture, urns, statuary, and other architectural treasures.

In addition to enjoying the unique shopping opportunities, guests are invited to tour Ladew’s spectacular Gardens, visit the historic home of Harvey S. Ladew, and stroll through the Nature Walk.
