New this year are organic vegetable seedlings such as Goldman’s Italian American heirloom tomatoes, Bright Lights Swiss chard, Italian parsley and Thai basil plus organic flower seedlings; hard-to-find nasturtiums, sunflowers and small fruit trees.

A raffle, including gift certificates for a garden tour with tea and popovers, landscape consulting and gardening treasures, is another new feature of the 2018 sale.
