Marketplace on the Lawn
Dozens of vendors from the mid-Atlantic fill Maymont’s Carriage House Lawn with every imaginable herb as well as annuals, perennials, trees, vegetables, and herbal products and crafts for this one-of-a-kind event.
From One Garden to Another
Peruse through a collection of “recycled” (ie second-hand) garden-related items, including books, decorative pots and birdfeeders, at the From One Garden to Another (FOGA) bargain booth. You’ll also find great deals on donated plants including rooted cuttings, bulbs and shrubs. All proceeds from the booth go to Maymont. Have plants or gently-used garden items to donate? Email us or call 804-358-7166, ext. 301. Some plants that have been donated in the past are acuba, bee balm, butterfly bush, daylilies, elephant ear bulbs, hostas, nandina and rose of sharon. Find out more about FOGA.
Meet the Experts
Meet the Expert sessions are located under a tent in the Marketplace and are free with Marketplace admission. Past topics include Homebrewing, Shrubs as Soft Drinks, Herb of the Year and Garden Tools.
