Our Horticultural Help Line will also be up and running in January for all your plant questions.

Tower Hill staff look forward to reopening on Feb. 1 to welcome everyone who needs a blast of color, scent, and warmth to shake off the winter doldrums. We hope you’re as excited as we are about Healers & Killers: Plants from the Apothecary Garden, which runs Feb. 1 to March 3, and 2019 in general. It’s going to be an amazing new year at Tower Hill!
