During the Spring Gardening Open House at The New York Botanical Garden on May 5 and 6, experts will be on hand to share all they know about the Rock Garden and the Azalea Garden. Docents will lead tours of the Azalea Garden and the historic Rock Garden. A variety of Home Gardening Demonstrations will instruct on the care of azaleas, alpine flowers, and woodland plants.

The New York Botanical Garden is competing as one of 40 New York City historic places in the National Trust for Historic Preservation’s Partners in Preservation program. The Botanical Garden has the chance to win a grant to restore a piece of Nature’s Showplace in New York City, the Rock Garden. The Open House Weekend offers visitors an opportunity to explore the Rock Garden, which hopefully will inspire and encourage them to vote to help preserve its cascade.
