Garden Closed

The United States Botanic Garden (USBG) is temporarily closed to the public to reduce the risk of transmitting COVID-19 coronavirus.

Whenever possible, the USBG will reschedule public programs and events originally scheduled during the closure period. Please monitor the USBG website for updates to operating status. Many resources can still be accessed online, including educational worksheets and manuals, fact sheets and more, and some of our programs will also be made available online. Find online resources at www.USBG.gov/AtHome

Grow

The horticulture staff at the U.S. Botanic Garden has an abundance of knowledge about plants. Our experts occasionally share gardening tips and horticultural expertise on common houseplants and growing techniques in the Mid-Atlantic.
