Delaware Botanic Gardens Opening Week Events  

The Delaware Botanic Gardens is celebrating its Grand Opening with a Special Guided Tour of the gardens along with an 11:30 am release of ladybugs at the Welcome Center. 

The Delaware Botanic Gardens will be a flagship, inspirational, educational and sustainable garden, created for the benefit and enjoyment of all; and will serve as a tourist and educational destination for our surrounding area.


The Delaware Botanic Gardens, located in Dagsboro, Delaware is a 37-acre coastal garden along Pepper Creek and is opening to the public the week of September 16th, 2019 with a series of special events. World renowned designer Piet Oudolf has created a two acre Meadow Garden at DBG, the centerpiece of the property. The meadow is comprised of over 70,000 plants and grasses. Adjacent to the Meadow Garden is the Woodland Garden where guests can enjoy a peaceful three-quarter mile walk along paths bordering the banks of Pepper Creek. The Folly Garden is a unique coastal garden built on the site of the former 20th century farmhouse that was originally located on the property. The Learning Garden sponsored by Dogfish Head Brewery is already being used to educate both students and the public about aquatic species and the importance of wetlands.
