Wave Hill Events July 14–July 21: Scented Plants Weekend

It’s mid-July and the gardens are as fragrant as they are beautiful. Celebrate the scents of summer at Wave Hill during our Scented Plants Weekend, July 15-17. Explore the gardens with our experts and take a bit of summer home with you in the form of an herbal craft or scented geranium plant. We’ve got activities for gardeners and budding herbalists of all ages, including Scented Plant walks, Herbal Spritz Station, Herb Petting Zoo and more! Find the full lineup here: Scented Plants Weekend
