Transform Your Landscape With Hendersonville’s Garden Jubilee

Whether you’re looking to grow your own vegetables, add an outdoor living space to your backyard or bring color into your landscape, Garden Jubilee is the place to be this Memorial Day weekend. Now in its 26th year, Hendersonville’s premiere lawn-and-garden show returns to Main Street May 25-26.

More than 260 vendors turn eight blocks into a lush oasis with thousands of annuals, perennials, vegetables and herbs. Other outdoor must-haves, such as lawn furniture, gardening tools and yard art, complement the plants for sale.

Garden Jubilee draws approximately 200,000 people each year. Visitors have come to expect a good variety of top-quality vendors, as well as a fun, welcoming environment. Hospitality tents on each end of Main Street hold customers purchases while they continue to shop, and attendants are stationed on each block to answer questions.

Throughout the day Saturday and Sunday, gardening experts take the stage at the Visitor Center to present 30-minute sessions on a variety of topics, such as native plants and pollinators, caring for fescue lawns, composting 101, and beginning vegetable gardening.

“We bring in a lot of experts to educate people on what is best for their specific yards,” Carden says. 

The weekend’s gardening theme extends beyond the show itself. The Gallery at Flat Rock presents Art in Bloom, May 25-27 with an opening evening preview on May 24. The exhibit pairs 20 floral designers with 20 works of art. The florists then interpret the pieces of art through floral arrangements.

On Monday, May 27, the Mr. Maple Festival takes place at Nichols Nursery. The local nursery — a leading expert in Japanese maple trees — will lead tours of its gardens and offer trees for sale from its collection of more than 1,000 cultivars.

Hours for Garden Jubilee are 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and Sunday. Admission is free.
