|NYBG President Gregory Long showcases Plant Collections|
Inside the tented Garden Furniture Fair, the guests were aflutter snatching up the gorgeous plants that filled the first room. NYBG provided a three-page/double-sided plant list for the Collector's Plant Sale. A horticulturist's dream… In fact, the plants were all sold -- within 30 minutes! While it didn't look like sales day at Macy's - it's much too elegant an affair - one had to be quick as a bunny to get your plants on!

In general, there was an abundance of gorgeous iron collectible furniture and accessories, along with garden statues and fountains.
All of the treasures are unique -- you just know there's a story to go along with each one; part of the charm of owning an antique that just oozes quality and provenance.
Debuting at the Preview is the Garden's first foray into paint colors! The NYBG Shop in the Garden dug into its rich archives - as they did for the Oscar de la Renta Collection -- to unearth (sorry - too rich!) lustrous, natural garden colors for the home, as produced for NYBG by their branding partner, Prestige. Garden Glamour readers stay tuned: more about all this brand extension initiatives and products to come. Very exciting!
