All the Buzz about Trade Secrets Garden Events on May 18 and 19

May 16th, 2019

Women’s Support Services of the Northwest Corner (WSS) is hosting its 19th Annual Trade Secrets® on Saturday and Sunday, May 18 and 19, 2019. Each year thousands of garden lovers trek to the Litchfield Hills of Connecticut for what has been dubbed “the northeast’s garden event of the year!”

Trade Secrets®, kicks-off with Saturday’s rare plant and garden antiques sale featuring nearly 60-vendors – specialized growers, small nursery owners, antique dealers, and artisans. They gather together to sell unusual plants, garden antiques, and other unique outdoor objects.

On Sunday, spend the day taking a self-guided tour of three of the most beautiful and picturesque private gardens.

The Falls Village, CT garden of Bunny Williams and husband John Rosselli, has been on every Trade Secrets® tour and is a highlight for garden lovers who come back year-after-year to see it.  An added treat: you will most likely have the pleasure of meeting Bunny & John as they enjoy their garden to the fullest and are often out and about during the tour.  Enjoy four incredible gardens throughout the region on this year’s tour.

Tickets for Saturday’s sale are $125 for early buyer from 8-10 am with a continental breakfast.  $50 for regular buyer from 10am-3pm. These tickets can be purchased in advance or day-of at the event.    Late Bloomer tickets are $25 from 1-3pm and can ONLY be purchased the day-of.

Garden Tour tickets are $75 and available in advance only.

Trade Secrets® is introducing Print-at-Home Etickets this year to purchase your advance tickets.  To purchase tickets, make a tax-deductible donation to WSS, or to get more information on the event please go online to tradesecretsct.com or call 860-364-1080.
