Connecticut’s “Trade Secrets”

The Trade Secrets sale in Connecticut’s Litchfield Hills is a chance to shop for treasures from nearly 60 growers and vendors of plants and garden antiques.

The sale, scheduled for May 19, 2012, at LionRock Farm in Sharon, Connecticut, is followed on May 20, 2012, with a tour of four private gardens.

Visitors can see a presentation by Marina Marchese of Red Bee Honey, a boutique farm known for an edible garden as well as its honeybees.

The tour will feature two perennial favorites, the gardens of Bunny Williams and John Rosselli and the 41-acre futuristic estate of Jack Hyland and Larry Wente. Two new gardens this year are the Linden Hill Farm owned by Richard deBart and Debra Blair, and Hawk Hill Farm owned by Robert and Jane Keiter.

For the 12th year, all proceeds from the annual event go to Women’s Support Services, an organization aiding victims of domestic violence.

Tickets for the rare plant and garden antique sale are $35 for regular admission from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. and $100 for “early buying” tickets. Tickets for the garden tours are $70.

For more information on the area, contact the Western Connecticut Visitors Bureau.
