April 2018 Update
What an amazing time we had at the Annual Spring Plant Sale! The addition of a third day helped keep the traffic steady while allowing ample time for visitors to shop. With press releases, Facebook, Twitter and many other online & print resources we were able to reach a much broader audience than in previous years. We signed up many new Friends of Bullington Gardens also.
Thank you so much to all of our dedicated volunteers and Friends of Bullington Gardens who gave their time, love and attention to making this sale a success! We couldn’t do it without you. Thank you for coming out to shop at Bullington Gardens and supporting our mission.
Mother’s Day Sale

Don’t miss this opportunity to shop for crafts, plants and hanging flower baskets. We’ll also have a selection of perennials, shrubs, trees, and tomatoes for sale.
May is one of the best times of year to visit Bullington Gardens. We have native azaleas opening up and greeting visitors, the wildflowers are blooming in the native woodland garden and Japanese maples are preening in the sun. Come on down for a leisurely stroll.
Fairy Days are coming! Our Fairy helpers are hard at work sprucing up the garden. We will have four sessions this year to accommodate more children. June 20 & 22, 9:30am & 1:00pm. Parents can sign up online or by calling 828-698-6104.
The fascination and wonder on the Elementary School Students faces as they discover insects and all they do in our gardens is one of many reasons we love what we do here at Bullington Gardens. Introducing a whole new generation to gardening is vital to our future, but it also helps students learn the relationship between the natural world and themselves in a manner that allows them to touch, see, hear and experience it firsthand.
The BOOST students are entering the final stretch in the annual garden competition. BOOST awards will be held June 1st including the announcement of best garden in their garden competition. The students are enthusiastic and excited about their work and can’t wait to show it off!
The American Horticultural Therapy Institute held a four-day training session at Bullington Gardens. The students were able to experience Horticultural Therapy firsthand in a natural setting. It’s encouraging to see the HT field expanding and the students engaged.
