The Horticultural Alliance of the Hamptons will host its annual HAH Garden Fair benefit on Friday, May 17, and Saturday, May 18, at the Bridgehampton Community House, offering plants for sale and more.

Admission is free to the Saturday plant sale from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. For the best selection of plants and a chance to bid in a silent auction — while enjoying wine and hors d’oeuvres — the Garden Fair opens on Friday from 5 to 7 p.m. with a preview party honoring long-standing HAH member Jane T. Iselin

Plants from East End wholesale specialty growers, as well as plants dug from HAH members’ gardens, will include edibles, vines, roses, succulents, natives, tropicals, shrubs and trees, including rare and unusual plants.

Naturalist Vicki Bustamante grew from locally sourced seed many of the native plants that will be on sale. There will also be plants available that are known to be deer resistant and/or pollinator attracting. Volunteers will be on hand to help guests make selections to improve their gardens and the environment more broadly.

The silent auction will include planted containers designed by horticulturists; a tour of central park with Sara Cedar Miller, historian emerita, photographer and author; and a drawing by Abbie Zabar of a floral arrangement in the Great Hall at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.

Tickets to the preview party are $50 in advance or $60 at the door. Or for $150, guests may enter with early admission at 4 p.m. and the first choice of plants. Visit hahgarden.org/GardenFair to purchase. Bridgehampton Community House is located at 2357 Montauk Highway, at School Street, Bridgehampton.
