Greenhouses are open between 9 am and 4 pm Monday through Friday. If you are visiting greenhouses, press doorbell at the entrance when you arrive.
Welcome To The Marsh Botanical Garden
Sitting on eight acres, with six greenhouses comprising around a third of an acre under glass, Marsh Botanical Garden offers support for researchers, faculty and students at Yale, as well as an informative and eye-catching experience for visitors.
In the summer, the naturalistic beds and wildflower plantings provide color and attract birds and butterflies. In spring, bulb displays, early flowering shrubs, and trees add color to the season. Our plantings include many woody plants with surprising fall color, both from leaf and fruit display.

Make An Impact
Our Garden could not exist without the generous support of the Yale and New Haven communities. We have several wonderful opportunities for specific projects at the Garden. We use the Master Plan that was completed in 2022 as a resource in identifying those projects, both large and small, that will help our Garden move forward in the direction of our mission statement.
