Do you sell tree peonies?

Linwood Gardens is not a commercial nursery. However, there are usually a very limited number of plants for sale each year. They are offered on a first-come, first-served basis during the Tree Peony Festival only. Plants sold then are available for pick-up around October and cannot be shipped.

Please see our Tree Peony Nurseries page for recommended peony sellers for more variety, availability, and shipping options.


I have reduced mobility. How can I experience Linwood Gardens?

The property comprises about 8 acres and one garden has raised curbs and narrow, uneven brick paths and may not be accessible. For our Tree Peony Festival guests who use walkers or are in wheelchairs, we recommend relaxing on the terrace, overlooking the Genesee Valley.

Gregarious wheelchair-assistants can help navigate the uneven lawns to see most gardens. When certain tree peony varieties along the driveway are in bloom, they can be viewed from the car upon exiting the property.


Can I bring my pet to Linwood Gardens?

Sorry, we cannot accommodate pets as Linwood Gardens is a private residence. Since our parking lot is sunny and hot, for the health and safety of your pet, please leave him or her at home. Of course, registered service animals are always welcome.


Do you have picnic facilities during the Tree Peony Festival?

In consideration of our caterer, Sweet Arts Bakery, and because Linwood Gardens is a private residence, we ask that you  limit any picnics to a tailgate lunch. Thank you for understanding. During Open Garden Days and special group tours, we do not provide food service and you are very welcome to bring lunch.


Do you accept volunteers?

Yes! Send us a note with preferred contact information and availability, letting us know if you have a special skill. The default task is weeding - we can always use help in the spring and sometimes the summer. Contact us for more information.
