Sow the seeds of history this year with Plimoth Patuxet Museums' Annual Spring Heirloom Plant Sale -- offering a bountiful selection of more than 70 types of heirloom species! In celebration of the Museums’ 75th Anniversary, our favorite heirloom herbs, vegetables, and flowers that are grown in the 17th-Century English Village will be available for purchase, in addition to unique varieties such as Ring of Fire Sunflowers! Many of these are excellent plants for attracting butterflies, bees, hummingbirds and other wildlife to your yard. During the winter months, the Museum's staff and volunteers have been propagating a variety of plants for this fundraiser and to introduce the gardening public to the incredible variety of heirloom plans that will thrive in this region. Shop local and support the mission of this Museum!

The sale will be held in the Museum's main parking lot. Plimoth Patuxet's knowledgeable horticulture staff will be on hand to answer questions, discuss heirloom plants, and provide gardening tips. Admission to the sale is free.
