Murder Mystery Teas

Come and enjoy an afternoon of food, fun and intrigue, with your group of friends by participating in one of our Murder Mystery Teas. All it takes is a group of eight people who are willing to take on an easy role as one of the characters and as many others who would like to attend. A luncheon of fancy sandwiches, scones with Devon Cream and other goodies, is served on three tiered platters along with tea in bone china cups. Of course, there will be a prize offered for some lucky person.

Plant Sales plantsales

The Plant Sales area is open from 10 am to 5 pm every day the garden is open.

Take home a piece of history by purchasing a plant propagated from the unique living collection at Milner Gardens & Woodland. The Plant Sales area offers a great selection of perennials, trees and shrubs, and native plants.

Plants have been propagated by a dedicated group of volunteers and all proceeds raised help support the operation of the garden. Volunteers are happy to assist you in picking out the perfect plant for you to take home to your garden. Members receive 10% discount on all plant purchases.

Be sure to check out the special events section and take note of our next spring or fall plant sale fundraiser. It is a great opportunity to pick up some fabulous plants at terrific prices and support this beautiful island gem - Milner Gardens & Woodland.
