The popular Herbs Galore & More at Maymont returns on Saturday, April 30, from 8 am–3 pm, bigger than ever, bringing dozens of plant and gardening vendors from across Central Virginia to the Carriage House Lawn for a one-day-only shopping experience. Plant lovers are invited to bring a wagon to fill with an array of rare and common herbs, annuals, perennials, trees, vegetables, herbal products, and garden accessories — everything they need to stock their gardens or window boxes.

Capping off Virginia’s Historic Garden Week, the 37th edition of Herbs Galore & More takes place when Maymont is in bloom, offering gardeners plenty of inspiration, elbow room, musical entertainment and a tempting selection of food trucks to keep fueled up all day. Participating vendors range from Colesville Nursery to small specialty purveyors of rare pepper plants, easy-to-grow succulents, and popular native species, as well as hand-crafted accessories and products derived from herbs.
