Dig It: A Rare Plant Auction® Event

4/27/2024 from 6:30 PM to 9:30 PM ET

Join us for a celebratory silent auction honoring the power of plants and bountiful benefits of horticulture—Dig It at DCH! Stroll through a curated collection of over 200 items—encompassing rare & unusual specimens, new-to-market must-haves, demonstrable garden game-changers, and exclusive horticultural experiences & garden ornamentation. Event festivities will be punctuated by Celebrated Plant Expert David Culp, renowned author, plantsman, and creator of the illustrious Brandywine Cottage.

Our Founders’ Room (Silent Auction 1) will set the mood for a lively night of horticultural temptation bursting with perennials, tropicals, and houseplants, while the Courtyard (Silent Auction 2) will present a sampling of specimen small trees and shrubs. Plant experts from our region’s horticultural institutions will be on hand to get you exactly what you are after.
Capture the evening with a photo in our nature-based garden room—crafted by Wilmington-based artist Susan Benarcik. Let your inner plant child shine at this premier, plant-lover event
