Celebrate the early-spring garden and bulb display on the beautiful March Bank with a day of events. The event gets its name from the du Pont family custom of walking the path from the March Bank to Magnolia Bend at this time of year looking for the first flowers in the garden.

Your admission includes access to the plant sale and the guided Director’s Garden Walk:

10:00 am–3:00 pm: Plant Sale of cyclamen, perennials, and unusual snowdrops. Members’ preview sale, 9:00–10:00 am
