Immerse yourself in 52 acres of year-round beauty at the Brooklyn Botanic Garden. Home to over 18,000 types of plants, the Garden's diverse collection celebrates nature's ever-changing spectacle with a glorious succession of color, texture and atmosphere through the seasons—from the very first cherry blossoms heralding spring's arrival to autumn's blaze of foliage and the poetic silhouettes of winter trees.
A verdant sanctuary amid the bustle of the city, Brooklyn Botanic Garden is a lush and intimate retreat to connect with and become inspired by the wonders of the natural world. Visit www.bbg.org to discover what's blooming now.
The Garden is open today for Martin Luther King, Jr. Day!
Why do certain plants, like hollies, produce fruit so much later than others?
Winter getting you down? The Garden offers monthly "Chase Away the Winter Blues” tours from December–March. Too cold? Bring the outdoors inside. FREE tours are offered in the winter every Tuesday, Wednesday, Saturday and Sunday. Thank you NYTimes for the shout out!
