About Us

Yew Dell Botanical Gardens has a rich history as one of Kentucky's horticultural gems. Today, Yew Dell is dedicated to enhancing and serving the community as a 60-acre botanical garden and nationally-recognized center of gardening and sustainable horticulture, welcoming more than 30,000 annual visitors. We offer stunning display gardens, perform research and testing on new plant varieties, promote sustainable landscape plant selection and management, and provide public education programs and community events. Most importantly, Yew Dell offers something for everyone - homeowners, beginning gardeners, green industry professionals, children and families - whether they come to enjoy the gardens, arboretum, hiking trails, educational programs, or special events. Yew Dell is recognized on the National Register of Historic Places and has been listed as a Top 10 U.S. Destination Garden by Horticulture Magazine.

While COVID-19 disrupted our in person plant sales, we have been thrilled to launch our online market to still get a great variety of plants into your garden. As a nonprofit, we appreciate your support. Every plant sale helps us continue to carry out our mission. Thank you!
